SuccessStories@Unipd - MSCA Supervisors and Fellows

Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) fund researchers, of any nationality, at all stages of their career and across all disciplines. Their aim is to promote excellence in research and to foster the exchange of knowledge through the acquisition of new skills and competences in international contexts. MSCA support the training and career development of researchers and are addressed to individual candidates (Individual Fellowships under Horizon 2020, Postdoctoral Fellowships under Horizon Europe).

MSC grants act as a career booster, fostering the development of new scientific competences, transferable skills and international - intersectoral research experience.
See more about MSCA-related Unipd programmes: MSCA MaRaThoN@Unipd , MSCA Seal of Excellence@Unipd
The full list of MASCA fellows grantees working at the University of Padua is available here.
