UniBg as Host Institution

UniBg is located in Lombardia, a region in Northern Italy with more than 10 million inhabitants and one of the regions with the highest GDP (Gross Domestic Product) per capita in Europe. Bergamo is a bridge between Western and Eastern Europe: its airport is the Southern Europe hub for Ryanair and other low cost airlines. UniBg is a State University with more than 20,500 students enrolled on various degree programs: 14 undergraduate degrees, 18 graduate degrees, 3 five-year degree, 15 first level master degrees, 6 second level master degrees and 7 PhD programs. The increasing number of students and a staff of 583 members (346 professors & researchers and 237 administrative and technical staff) provides a dynamic scientific and teaching environment open to innovations. The Departments and the Research and Service Centres enjoy very close connections with the town, its institutions, and its cultural and economic environment. They are grouped in three campuses located in three different areas: Campus of Economics and Law (Bergamo), Campus of Humanities (Upper Bergamo) and Campus of Engineering (Dalmine). In September 2017 UniBg has improved its position in the top 500 of the Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings, which lists the 1103 world’s best universities, the only global university performance table to judge research-intensive universities across all of their core missions: teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook.

We are keen to host Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action (MSCA) fellows to work in our research teams.

The grant provides an allowance to cover your living, travel and family costs as well as research and networking costs in line with MSCA scheme rates.
