January 20, 2017
The science community in Georgia has been informed about the range of funding opportunities open under the EU-funded Horizon 2020 programme. At a conference on 17 January, Georgian scientists and researchers were informed about how to receive grants from Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions for making their scientific and innovative ideas a reality and strengthening research centres in Georgia.
The Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions (MSCA) provide grants for all stages of researchers' careers and encourage transnational, intersectoral and interdisciplinary mobility. The MSCA enable universities, research centres, and companies to host talented foreign researchers and to create strategic partnerships with leading institutions worldwide.
Horizon 2020 is the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme ever with nearly EUR 80 billion of funding available over seven years (2014 to 2020). It promises more breakthroughs, discoveries and world-firsts by taking great ideas from the lab to the market.
