Marie Curie Fellowships

The Marie Curie Fellowships are a major EC initiative to enable recent graduates who are in the early stages of establishing their careers to further extend their abilities and qualifications.

Beginning in May 2006, 24 early stage researchers have been employed for periods of between 3 and 36 months as part of the COFLUIDS project at leeds. Details of the fellows appointments (in order of appointment date) and activities are listed below.

In addition to the formal training, a number of "team building" events have been organised, photos from a selection of which are given here.
