100.000 Marie Curie fellows

16 maart 2017 door Communicatie BK

The European Union is celebrating the one hundred thousandth fellow benefiting from the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions.

To mark this milestone in the history of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions, 30 highly promising researchers have been selected to showcase the EU's actions dedicated to excellence and worldwide mobility in research. Since the launch of the programme 20 years ago, the share of female participants has been exceptionally high and 18 of the selected researchers are women.

With the help of a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellowship grant, Nancy Couling will start her research within the Chair of History of Architecture and Urban Planning in September. She will conduct research from the Netherlands on current urbanisation processes in the North Sea. An architect by training, Couling’s cutting-edge research could form the basis for the sustainable development of Europe’s ocean regions within an urban context. She aims to provide a full analysis of the potential of the North Sea region, including its role as a major shipping route. Her research will take into account activities on both land and sea.
