Labs main objective is to directly and indirectly create qualified employment and scientific employment in Portugal through the implementation of research and innovation agendas aimed at the creation of economic and social value.
On the other hand, CoLabs should foster of internationalisation of national scientific and technological capacity, relevant intervention areas and conduct R&D activities that enhance synergies with scientific and higher education institutions, in particular in the context of specialised, vocational or advanced training programmes in close collaboration with social, economic and cultural partners.
In this context, Horizon Europe and EU funding opportunities play a key role. Having this in mind and as part of AlmaScience internationalization and funding diversification strategy, Tatiana Costa, AlmaScience Innovation, IP and Funding manager organized an internal information session, targeted at AlmaScience’s team and associates. In this second event, the focus was on Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA).
Targeted at supporting researchers at all stages of their careers and the cooperation between industry and academia and innovative training to enhance employability and career development, MSCA was a very successful programme under the previous EU framework, Horizon 2020, and the expectations are high for Horizon Europe.
