MSCA individual fellowship hosting offers

Marie Curie ActionsRecently, some important management decisions have been made to orientate the research at ILVO in a holistic framework of systems thinking as well as to combine ILVO's tacit knowledge with new technological approaches like genomics, metabolomics, (remote) sensing technology, precision farming, innovative food/feed production technology, new breeding technologies, modelling as well as participatory social sciences approaches. This means that a lot of the research at ILVO is conducted in Living Labs, such as a Food Pilot, fishing vessels, modern greenhouses and animal farming units, and in the context of inter- and transdisciplinary research. To accelerate and further improve this new research process, ILVO is looking to host experienced researchers at post-doc level in the framework of Marie Sklodowska-Curie or other individual fellowships.
