Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships

Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships (IF) actions, in Horizon2020, support innovative research projects proposed by individual researchers  holding a Ph.D. or having four years of full-time equivalent research experience. The actions are aimed at fostering excellent training paths and researchers career development through projects which include international, interdisciplinary and intersectoral mobility.

The Research Support Department of Politecnico di Torino supports researchers willing to submit applications for Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships. Contact europoli@polito.it for more information.

  • Nano-antennas for artificial photosynthesis

    LuSH Art project aims at developing new hybrid nanomaterials which are light powered by energy migration and to fabricate new luminescent solar concentrators (LSCs) taking inspiration from a tree leaf.

  • Intuition and cognition for the structural analysis

    The project aims to realize a digital assistant tool to perform a structural analysis through embedded Artificial Intelligence - AI. By studying the human perception and intuition from a neuro-cognitive view, we propose to realize an integrated computational machine with human baggage.

  • Nanoparticles for pancreatic cancer treatment

    Delivering drugs to the tumor site is difficult, in the case of pancreatic tumors, because of the abundant presence of fibrotic tissues. The project  aims to develop tumor targeted nanocrystals coated by a biomimetic layer with enhanced drug delivery capability. The nanocrystals will be able to disturb the tumor microenvironment and also to provide contrast enhancement for treatment monitoring.

  • Advanced modelling for wave energy conversion

    Wave energy represents a great untapped potential, but modern technologies are not economically viable yet, partially due to modelling uncertainties. This project aims at developing accessible, accurate and fast mathematical models for more effective and reliable design of wave energy converters.
