Marie Curie Actions Road Show 2012

The European Union 7th Framework Programme Marie Curie Actions aims at strengthening quantitatively and qualitatively the human potential in research and technology in Europe. Research centres are one of the main drivers of technological development in Europe and have a critical role in building and strengthening the skills and experience of researchers. This is the context in which the “Marie Curie Actions Road Show 2012” has been jointly organised by seven European Research Institutions.
The aims of the road show are to:
1. Present and introduce the research centers in each of the countries visited and acquaint the participants with the facilities of these centers 
2. Deliver presentations on the Marie Curie Actions, focusing especially on Intra European Fellowships and Career Integration Grants with the cooperation of the European Commission and the national contact points. 
On 13 March 2012, the call for proposals for Marie Curie Intra European Fellowships (IEF) has been published. This call provides financial support for advanced training and trans-national mobility, for a period of 12-24 months, for individual projects presented by experienced researchers from Member States or Associated Countries in liaison with a host organisation from a Member State or Associated Country. 
The call for proposals for Marie Curie Career Integration Grants (CIG) has been published 20 October 2011. This call is intended to improve the prospects for the permanent integration of researchers who are offered a stable research post in Europe from 2 to 4 years after a mobility period in a country different from the country where the researcher has been active during the past years (i.e. the researcher has to be mobile but can come from anywhere in the world – moving within Europe or coming from outside Europe).

Local information days
Before the closure of these calls (on August 16 for IEF and on March 6/September 18 for CIG)  a series of Marie Curie Info-days will be organised as part of the Marie Curie Actions Roadshow 2012. The info-day in Rome will take place on April 11th 2012 at Italian Representation of the European Commision (Via Quattro Novembre, 149 – 00186 Roma).

All researchers of any nationality and from any research field are invited to attend the info-days in one of these cities. Each event will provide updated information about the funding offered in the upcoming calls. It will in particular focus on Intra-European Fellowships and Career Integration Grants. Five of the major research organizations in Europe will also present various opportunities for carrying out research as part of a post-doctoral fellowship in their respective institutions.
This invitation is targeted to researchers who are interested in carrying out research in one of these research centers by submitting a proposal for a Marie Curie Fellowship.
