my marie curie timeline
My Marie Curie Timeline
  • 2005-2007: Talking, meeting with people … adjustment, career, finances, housing etc.
  • 2007: Bogazici CMPE ideal choice: focus on research, student potential, well-known, great location. (but public)
  • Learnt about MC from colleagues.
  • Read, read, read, emailed, asked …
  • 2007: Applied for MC
  • 2008: Granted MC. Negotiations, great help from ARDO.
  • 2009: Started project.

a word about my mc project
A word about my MC project
  • Title: Predict-MP: Predictive Techniques for System Level Analysis of Multi-Processors, 2009-2013
  • About:
    • Emerging products, such as multicores and parallel software, exploit concurrency to spread work around a system improving performance.
    • European competitiveness in microelectronics and software such as telecommunications, automobile, consumer products relies heavily on improving reliability of such emerging products.
  • Goal:
    • Novel reliability improvement techniques to detect and debug potential errors in emergingproducts before production.

  • Prestigious grant, getting more competitive, high visibility
  • Great opportunity for reintegration (especially financially for public schools since salaries are not competitive)
  • Project funding ready before you arrive. Almost like a seed money.

some mc tips
Some MC Tips
  • MC is different from other FP7 projects in that it is based mostly on your career more than your proposed project.
  • Demonstrate leadership skills, team work through activities in academia, industry.
  • Emphasize your previous research outcomes, patents, invited talks, research grants etc.
  • Your proposed research should build on your earlier research and third country know how.
  • Provide detailed targets in implementation. Include publication, patents that are planned.

some mc tips1
Some MC Tips
  • Provide concrete collaborations with third country.
  • Be creative in writing your proposal. There is no single right way to prepare the proposal.
  • Have your colleagues read and give you feedback.
  • Be in touch with ARDO and TUBITAK.
  • Too much bureaucracy though simpler than other FP7 projects.
  • TUBITAK has great published resources and contacts on their FP7 web pages.
  • When in doubt, contact Burcak Cullu. [email protected]

what can be done to improve overall process
What can be done to improve overall process?
  • Have more information meetings in Bogazici.
  • Inform potential applicants before they arrive.
  • Get ARDO’s help in filling the forms:
    • Quality of host organization, including adequacy ofinfrastructures/facilities
    • Practical arrangements for the implementation and management of the project
    • Information regarding Bogazici on EPSS system. I had too much confusion about whose name was going to be where.
  • Bureaucracy can be overwhelming on the PI (almost like filing tax forms in US).
  • Need professional budget tracking esp. for larger FP7 projects and tax issues.

what am i doing thanks to mc
What am I doing thanks to MC?
  • Starting to build network in Europe (to apply for FP7 projects).
  • Building research team
  • Recently appointed FP7 expert.
  • Ok, not because of MC but
    • Applying for non-EU project funding.
    • Familiarizing with academic work environment. Dealing with who can use our departmental parking lot etc 
    • Reintegrating Istanbul!
