What is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellowship?

Marie Skłodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellowships ― funded under Horizon Europe Programme – are the main tool from European Union to support the transnational mobility and career development of the most talented researchers.
All research topics can be funded: from physics to linguistics, from life sciences to mathematics. The grant covers the remuneration costs for the researchers (with an allowance for researchers with family), and the costs for training, research and networking.

Who can participate?

All researchers with a PhD degree and not more than 8 years of experience in research can participate.

Two types of fellowships to come to Verona

European Fellowships: They are open to researchers of any nationality, and any country, who decide to come to the University of Verona for a period of 12-24 months
If a researcher wants to come to the University of Verona, she/he should not have spent in Italy more than 12 months in the last three years.

Global Fellowships: They are open to researchers of European nationality or long-term resident in Europe. The fellowship foresees a period of 12-24 months in an extra-European institution and a period of 12 months back to the University of Verona. 
In this case, the researcher should not have spent in the extra-European country more than 12 months in the last three years.
