Careers +

Careers + is Ca’ Foscari’s strategy aiming at enhancing the quality of research, attracting new talents and consolidating scientific excellence in our University.

The Research for Global Challenges initiative strengthens our commitment, promoting an interdisciplinary approach to research.

Here is a list of our main actions:

Top host institution in Italy for Marie Curie Fellowships

In 2015 and 2016 and 2017 Ca’ Foscari University has improved and confirmed its performance as top Italian Host Institution for granted Marie Curie Fellowships. We actively support researchers in making their profiles more competitive at a European and international level. We particularly encourage the participation in individual calls and provide assistance step by step, thus proving to be the host institution which can make the difference.

Marie Curie +1

Thanks to this internal selection procedure the winners of the Marie Curie Individual Fellowships who choose Ca’ Foscari as a host research institution can benefit from an additional paid year, so as to consolidate the results of their research as well as their position within the university. It is one of the many actions our University is taking to invest in promising researchers and to foster talent it helped training and it attracted, in order to further improve the research environment.


Continuing education in research

The research area promotes continuing education to research for students, PhD candidates, researchers, teachers and administrative staff. Involving all the members of our University community is a key factor to strengthen present and future talents.

Human Resources Strategy For Researchers

Ca’ Foscari has obtained the full Human Resources Strategy for Researchers certificate awarded by an international Evaluating Committee. The University is now amongst the Italian “HR Recognised Institutions” on the EURAXESS website. The main purpose of the Strategy is to improve labour condition for researchers working at Ca’ Foscari, as well as the University attractiveness for Italian and international talents.


International Research Environment

Ca’ Foscari stands for its participation in competitive calls and networks funded by Programmes for research, cooperation, environmental protection and development of sustainable technologies to be launched on the market.
Over the last few years, our University has been hosting 200 research fellows per year, from 40 countries.

Attracting new talents

Scouting excellence and hiring high-profile – especially young - researchers is one of Ca’ Foscari’s main commitments. Our University aims at the strategic development of specific scientific sectors, also appointing researchers with international experience by direct recruitment.
Thanks to the portability option, high-qualification-research-program winners – such as ERC – can be included in Ca’ Foscari’s team.
Incoming mobility of international excellent researchers is promoted as well through the financing of visiting fellowships and by supporting applications within the Rita Levi Montalcini Programme.
