Kwintessence was set up in 2007 by Mrs. Alie Kwint, and provides consultancy services to universities, research organisations and companies for the Marie Curie Skłodowska Actions (MSCA).
The MSCA have been a popular part of the European Framework Programmes for many years. Their orientation has changed from a pure mobility fellowship programme to a programme dedicated to ensure excellent and innovative research training as well as attractive career and knowledge-exchange opportunities of researchers, to better prepare them for current and future societal challenges. Marie Curie projects are partly about science, but even more so about training, mobility and career development of researchers.
Alie Kwint has over 15 years of hands on experience with all types of Marie Curie projects, and an in-depth knowledge of the political and strategic background of the MSC Actions. I can rely on an extensive network in Europe, including the MSCA National Contact Points, the European Commission and the Research Executive Agency. Since 2017, Kwintessence cooperates with OxygenEUm.
