Are you a researcher, full of ideas, but lacking the financial means to implement them all? Or maybe you represent a research organisation or foundation looking for partners? Whoever you are, if you’re in research the EU Commission’s Marie Curie Actions are an invaluable resource.

Marie Curie Actions are part of the EU’s wider framework for developing world-class research in Europe and they share the aim of increasing the mobility of Europe’s workforce with EURES. The initiative provides training and career development for researchers as well as funding for cutting-edge research projects.
 
Funding is distributed via eight main programmes to promising researchers, organisations and foundations both within and outside of the EU. These programmes cover various target groups from individual researchers to non-EU researchers and even include a staff exchange scheme and a service matching researchers with businesses.
 
Both experienced researchers and those new to the field can benefit from the funding options available and research proposals from most disciplines are welcomed. Universities, research organisations and private firms are also eligible to apply and proposals are considered irrespective of the age of the applicant.
 
With a budget of over EUR 4.75 Billion for the period 2007 to 2013, the Actions are able to support a diverse array of programmes and individuals and can include up to 100% funding for labour costs. The research funding has already helped Axiom, a British company which benefited from the Marie Curie Actions, to develop a new video production tool, at use now in Hollywood. Another Marie Curie fellow has developed particle physics methods which have subsequently been used by the team operating the Large Hadron Collider in Zurich.
