Location: Reuil-Malmanson, France
21 students of the IFP School in Rueil-Malmason (France) participated in Ms Songzhi Yang’ s outreach activity that was implemented on the 30th of May 2017. The students were approximately 23 year old and eager to find out how they could “boost their research carrier”, as indicated by the title of the activity.
Ms Yang presented the background, origin and history of the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions Innovative Training Networks and she took the IPPAD project as an example to clarify why mobility and innovation are two of the main advantages of these programmes. Useful websites and interesting videos about the Marie Curie Actions motivated the students to ask for more information regarding the H2020 programmes. Ms Yang also explained to the students how they can apply for the fellowship and how the MSCA projects enhance the career development of each research fellow.
The enthusiasm shown by the audience but also the useful information provided were enough evidences for the evaluation of this activity and Ms Yang was kindly asked by the teachers that were present to share her presentation with all the students of IFP who would like to pursuit the research career.
