29th Nov 2016 – Celebrating 20 years of Marie Curie Actions

27

Celebrating 20 years of Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions are Minister of State John Halligan with  Jennifer Brennan and Suzanne Miller-Delaney from the Irish Marie Skłodowska-Curie Office. Minister Halligan joins Marie Curie and colleagues to mark 20 years of EU funding for business, academic and community-engaged research. Named after the Polish-born Nobel Prize winning scientist the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions is the top performer in Ireland’s bid for Horizon 2020 funding.  Under the scheme Irish researchers have won close to €60 million euro of funding to support projects across the full breadth of research areas from science and technology to humanities, social science, business and law. The Irish Marie Skłodowska-Curie Office, which supports researchers with their funding proposals, is based at the Irish Universities Association and is supported by the Irish Research Council.
