G@V - GLOBAL_AT_VENICE: Research and Training for Global Challenges is a new 60-month fellowship project jointly funded by the European Union and Ca’ Foscari University of Venice through the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action COFUND.
Ca’ Foscari seeks 15 brilliant researchers to recruit from all over the world, who will work for 24 months with the Institute for Global Challenges of Ca’ Foscari on six interdisciplinary research areas:
- Research Institute for Complexity
- Research Institute for Digital and Cultural Heritage
- Research Institute for Social Innovation
- Research Institute for International Studies
- Research Institute for Green and Blue Growth
- Research Institute for Innovation Management
The aim of the programme is to strengthen high-profile researchers’ curricula, thus providing Europe and the world with a pool of researchers capable of bridging the gaps between academic and applied research, and between research and market.
Global at Venice officially starts in January 2021 and lasts 5 years. In this first call Global at Venice first call for proposals will award a maximum of 8 Fellowships lasting each 24 months.
Applicants will have to choose a potential supervisor whose role is to integrate the research within the Research for Global Challenge Institute. A list of supervisors will be available on our webpage
Two calls will be launched during the first and the second year of the programme to recruit brilliant researchers, who will work with the Institute for Global Challenges.
