The Marie Curie Alumni Association - Venice Local Organisation includes Marie Curie Fellows who are carrying out (or carried out) their MC research project at our Institution and, in addition, Ca Foscari Alumni awarded with a Marie Curie Fellowship. The membership will be extended to all Marie Curie Fellows doing research in Venice.
The group was launched with the aim to allow MC Fellows to meet, communicate, and collaborate actively by exchanging information on their experiences. It is a network composed of excellent researchers from all over the world with different backgrounds, who will have the opportunity to propose initiatives and expand our University’s opportunities for international and interdisciplinary collaboration.
The Venice Local Organisation is part of the international network Marie Curie Alumni Association, that includes those researchers who have benefited from Marie Curie Fellowships.
Global Fellowships are open to researchers currently within or outside Europe who want to move to a Third Country and then come back to an EU Member State or Associated Country.
The duration of the fellowship is 24 to 36 months and primarily covers the salary of the researcher. Global Fellowships are awarded to the most promising researchers, who want to benefit from training abroad (mobility rules).
Ca' Foscari can offer a tenure-track position to researchers who have been awarded a three-year Global Fellowship.

“I am very grateful to Ca’ Foscari academic staff and research office for supporting me during the application of the project “GYSIART - A cultural history of comparative art practices and receptions in Cold War Europe (1945-1991)”, granted in 2017 with a three-year Marie Skłodowska-Curie Global Fellowship. Upon the obtainment of the fellowship, [...] it was possible to open a three-year tenure-track position as researcher.
This opportunity is providing me a ground-breaking enhancement and concrete perspectives in my future scholar career.”
Matteo Bertelè, tenure-track researcher at the Department of Philosophy and Cultural Heritage
