Marie Curie grants

Marie Skłodowska-Curie is the collective name for the EU Commission's programme addressed to research career-development. There are two main types of Marie Curie programmes, individual fellowships and network grants, both currently funded hrough the Horizon2020 frame programme.

Individual Marie Curie grants

Each individual grant usually covers two years' salary, a mobility allowance, research costs and overheads for the host institution. Individual researchers submit proposals for funding in liaison with their planned host organisation. Here we have listed the names of active individual Marie Curie fellowships at Karolinska Institutet and their hosting project supervisors/PIs.
