The second call for the “Global at Venice - Research and Training for Global Challenges” Cofund Fellowship Programme is open!

The programme, funded through the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions COFUND scheme, gives 15 talented researchers from all over the world the opportunity to undertake their research and training activity at Ca’ Foscari University of Venice. The programme is supported by the University’s corporate partners, including research centres, non-academic networks of spinoffs, and small and medium enterprises, where Fellows will have the opportunity to complete secondments, bridging the gap between academic and applied research, and between research and market.

The “G@V - Research and Training for Global Challenges” Cofund Fellowship Programme will last for 60 months and is jointly funded by the European Commission (Grant Agreement no. 945361). It started on 1 January 2021.
