Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions and ALECS

The Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions (MSCA), named after the double Nobel Prize winning Polish-French scientist famed for her work on radioactivity, support research training and career development focused on innovation skills. Researchers at all career stages and from all  disciplines are eligible for funding,  irrespective of their nationality. Awarding €6.16 billion in the period of 2014 to 2020, the initiative offers researchers attractive working conditions and fosters cross-sector and international mobility. The combination of generous research funding coupled with the possibility to gain experience abroad and in the private sector enables cooperation, helps to foster knowledge transfer and boosts researchers’ career prospects.

The ALECS fellowship programme is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie COFUND action led by Lero, the Irish  Software Research Centre, one of the best known and best regarded software-related research centres in the world.

Candidates awarded an ALECS fellowship will have the opportunity to develop their research activities at Lero whilst availing of the long-term benefits of being part of the prestigious group of MSCA fellows.


This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No. 754489.
