We’re celebrating the 100 000th fellow supported by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions over the past 20 years. To mark the occasion, 30 highly promising researchers have been selected to showcase the EU’s actions dedicated to excellence and worldwide mobility in research.
“Celebrating the award of the 100 000th Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellowship is a great moment to recall the importance of this programme, which supports our brightest and best researchers in tackling the big societal challenges facing Europe. Marie Skłodowska-Curie paved the way for future generations of female researchers.
On the eve of International Women’s Day, I am especially proud that the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions pay particular attention to gender balance, and with more than 40% of fellowships awarded to female scientists, are the best performing part of Horizon 2020 with respect to gender”.
