TÜBİTAK, with the collaboration of the European Commission and Boğaziçi University, organized “Marie S. Curie Actions Roadshow” in Ankara (May 16th, 2019) and in İstanbul (May 17th, 2019).

Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) under Horizon2020 EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation contribute to excellent research, boosting jobs, growth and investment by equipping researchers with the new knowledge, skills and international and intersectoral exposure to fill the top positions of tomorrow and solve current and future societal challenges. The MSCA thrive by being open to all domains of research and innovation addressed under the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union. These are chosen freely by the applicants in a fully bottom-up manner.

During the Road Show, detailed information about the contributions of Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) to the European Research Area, future objectives and the upcoming calls of 2019 – 2020 were presented.

Also, testimonials from MSCA-IF Fellows; expert viewpoints from EC project evaluators were presented during the Infodays. Moreover for the first time Marie Curie Alumni Association (MCAA) Turkish Chapter also had a session to introduce their initiatives in Turkish Research Area.
