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. Horizon Europe, the European Union’s research and innovation funding program, will be 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.
