About this scholarship

Curtin has been awarded funding from the prestigious EU Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme to support 3 current Curtin students/staff to spend 2-3 months in Europe. This is part of the successful funding to Dr Hani Al-Salami (principle Curtin-lead of the MEDLEM project).

The purpose of this funding is to foster relationships between Australia and Europe through Curtin University and four European institutions - University of Novi Sad, Serbia; Elvesys SAS, France; Marcotech, Germany and Genochem SAS, France.

The successful candidate is not required to carry out specific research tasks, attend compulsory seminars or lectures, or write any reports.
