Europe has a vibrant and exciting science and technology culture and offers many excellent and generous career funding opportunities for researchers and innovators, no matter where they come from in the world.  Join the event to learn about Horizon Europe, the European Union’s research and innovation funding program, which is the world’s largest multinational R&I program. In addition to funding collaborative research projects, it will offer opportunities to individual researchers. Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions and European Research Council grants will be open to researchers from public and private organizations, who would like to spend time in Europe, regardless of their nationalities, careers stage, or field of research. Experts will present these opportunities and guide the audience through the options and practicalities of application, including a presentation on EURAXESS services. Tune in to hear from EURAXESS North America and the Delegation of the European Union to the United States, among others.


The webinar will be hosted virtually by the European Union Center at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
