Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions COFUND

​Cardiff Metropolitan University is a partner university in a new £17m initiative to bring up to 90 new research fellows from across Europe to grow Wales' world class scientific research.

The funding for the initiative was announced by Welsh Government Economy and Science Minister, Edwina Hart, on Wednesday, 9 September.

The Welsh Government has secured £7m from the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions COFUND scheme, which is part of the EU Horizon 2020 programme.

Working in partnership with Welsh universities including Cardiff Metropolitan University, the Welsh Government will provide £10m match-funding enabling these fellows to work with the best researchers in Welsh universities.​

COFUND Research Fellowships

Cardiff Metropolitan University is delighted that it will be providing a small number of research fellowships under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions COFUND scheme. These research fellowships, each lasting 3 years in duration, are to be aimed at experienced researchers in possession of a doctoral degree or with at least four years of full-time equivalent research experience, who wish to work at Cardiff Met, and who are currently based outside the UK.

We are going to be looking for candidates with credible research proposals, who can build strong links with research partners in Wales and beyond.

More information about this scheme and how to apply is to be made available soon after the project's launch, however, those with an immediate interest are welcome to contact:
