The “G@V – Research and Training for Global Challenges” Cofund Fellowship Program 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 program is supported by the University’s corporate partners including strategic research centers, non-academic networks of spin-offs, and small and medium enterprises (SMEs), where fellows will have the opportunity to complete secondment, bridging the gap between academic and applied research, and between research and market.
The second call for proposals will award a maximum of seven fellowships each lasting 24 months. It opened on April 26th, 2022. The deadline to submit applications is August 5th, 2022 at 1:00 PM (CEST).
Applicants are requested to submit their own research proposal in one of the six multidisciplinary Research for Global Challenges Institutes (RGCI) that will support them with their individual research and training needs.
Applicants must contact a potential supervisor, whose role is to integrate the research within the Research for Global Challenge Institute.
Please refer to the Global@Venice website and the call for proposals for further information.
