UNA Europa, an alliance of universities FOR the emergence of talent and the development of research CAREERs

Descripción del proyecto

Formación profesional posdoctoral a través de la red UNA Europa

La Universidad Complutense de Madrid (UCM) pone en marcha y financia conjuntamente el proyecto UNA4CAREER con el objetivo de ofrecer a cuarenta investigadores (a través de dos convocatorias para un programa de sesenta meses) una beca de investigación posdoctoral que mejorará sus perspectivas profesionales. El programa también aprovecha la pertenencia de la UCM a la Alianza Europea UNA que une a las principales instituciones de investigación de la Unión Europea para ofrecer la posibilidad de realizar comisiones de servicio en otros cinco países europeos. Incluye cuatro grandes áreas de trabajo (humanidades, salud, ciencias sociales y ciencias experimentales), al tiempo que fomenta los proyectos interdisciplinarios. Los beneficiarios de las becas UNA4CAREER adquirirán la experiencia y las habilidades necesarias para lograr una carrera de investigación en el mundo académico y fuera de este, respaldada por una sólida formación europea.

Objetivo

Universidad Complutense de Madrid (UCM), one of the top ranked Universities in Spain, supports Post Doctorates through its own talent attraction programme (0,5M€/year) and co-funds 50% of Regional programmes (0.5M€/year).
UCM is a well-positioned University at National and EU level, but expanding the funding and territorial scope of these initiatives will allow UCM and the Region to become even more attractive to outside talent.
UNI4CAREER aims at mobilizing 7M€ in the Region (over doubling current funding), through a multiannual fellowship programme (60 months) that will attract 40 experienced researchers in 2 international calls (20 researchers / call). The fellows will incorporate into one of 94 UCM´s excellence groups on 4 knowledge areas: humanities, health, social and experimental sciences.
UNA4CAREER leverages on UNA EUROPA ALLIANCE inspired by, and contributing to, EC EUROPEAN UNIVERSITIES INITIATIVE: UCM plus 5 top EU universities from Italy, France, Belgium, Germany and Poland, that will be Partner Organisations (PO) offering secondment positions, being all committed with HRS4R (4 out of 6 members, including UCM, awarded).
UNA4CAREER, as an open network enabling 40 researchers to combine their work in an INTERNATIONAL (6 countries), CROSS-SECTORAL (possibility to interact with over 500 actors through the UNA Europa Alliance) and INTERDISCIPLINARY (4 scientific areas) framework, will definitely help spreading the best practices of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions.
UNA4CAREER will allow the fellows to EXPAND their SKILLS in order to improve their employability in both the academic and non-academic sectors, through SECONDMENTS (60 months in Academic and 30 months in non-Academic entities are estimated).
UNA4CAREER will also encourage researchers to PURSUE A CAREER with a truly European dimension including COMPLEMENTARY TRAINING ON RESEARCH AND TRANSFERABLE SKILLS (over 58 courses available).
