Building research careers in Europe - Update 2007

Funded under: FP7-PEOPLE


The Marie Curie Host Fellowships are an ongoing source of pride and satisfaction for us here at the Directorate-General for Research. Helping to launch research careers, mobilising expertise and consolidating research structures, the activities supported through these fellowships have created a fount of knowledge that is instrumental in meeting not only the aspirations of our youth, but also the aims of the European Union as a whole.
The ambitious research conducted under the Host Fellowships is contributing directly to the goals outlined in the Lisbon Strategy: as dedicated members of the research community, Marie Curie hosts and fellows are helping to forge Europe into the most dynamic and competitive knowledge-based economy in the world.
Effective as they are, the Host Fellowships are but one of the EU’s many Marie Curie Actions, whose continued success translates into even greater recognition under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). The nature of the Actions remains fundamentally unchanged.
Their scope, however, has been redesigned in order to sharpen their profiles. At an organisational level, this means for example that the Research Training Networks (RTNs) and the Early Stage Research Training (EST) programmes have been merged into Initial Training Networks (ITNs).
