EURAC Marie Skłodowska-Curie Week: 9-11th May 2016, Bolzano/Bozen/Italy
EURAC is interested in hosting Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellows (IF). Individual Fellowships fund researchers who are looking to enhance their career development and prospects by working abroad. IF follow a bottom-up approach, i.e. research fields are chosen freely by the applicants.
Applications for funding are made jointly by the researcher and the host organisations. In order to prepare a successful application with interested researchers, EURAC, as a future host, is organizing EURAC Marie Skłodowska-Curie Week, taking place from 9 to 11 May 2016 in Bolzano/Bozen. Over the course of the workshop, candidates work on the project proposal with experienced researchers from EURAC, get detailed information from MSC-IF fellows, and are trained by an MSC evaluator on the does-and-don'ts of the proposal phase.  
The deadline for application to participate in the EURAC MCS-Week is 15.03.2016. Please visit the event website at in order to find out more.

1345 Chamois in Tatras

1345 – this is the number of chamois in the Polish and Slovak part of the Tatra Mountains according to the annual counting organised this winter. It is slightly less than in the last year, however, the form of the counting includes some level of uncertainty. That is why, it is assumed that the number of animals is stable. This international chamois monitoring is one of the oldest in the world. It is organised in similar form since 1957.
