The Project

MEDEA is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Networks (ITN-ETN) funded in the framework of the HORIZON 2020 program.  The main objective of the MEDEA proposal is to create a platform where Early Stage Researchers will receive an inter-disciplinary and inter-sectoral comprehensive research training in one of the major field of Photonics that will be contributed by leading universities and research centers, and by key-player companies in the development and commercialization of state-of-the-art ultrafast laser sources and detection systems.

Well-designed activities will be offered by the network to enhance the Early Stage Reseachers’ career perspectives in both the academic and private sector, with a particular attention to high-quality training in research, innovation, management and entrepreneurship as well as communication skills.

Through their research activities Early Stage Reseachers will contribute to the advance of attosecond and intense femtosecond extreme ultraviolet spectroscopy combining in-depth investigation of fundamental electronic processes in simple systems with experiments in complex molecules with potential impact in chemistry, surface science, and biology.
