About the event

NB! Due to the COVID-19/Corona virus-situation, the meeting will be done as a webinar.

The Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions training and career development fellowships for postdoctoral-level researchers, will soon open for proposals. Whether you intend to recruit a young talent to your lab, institute or your business, or you are looking for a research stay yourself anywhere in the world: Improve your chances by attending this seminar.

The MSCA Individual Fellowships (IF) are open to researchers of all nationalities, in all disciplines, and with a PhD degree or more than four years of full-time research experience. IF opens for a stay of between 12 and 24 months abroad. If "abroad" means a stay outside of Europe, there´s an additional year of funding for the return phase in Europe. Being involved in a MSCA project looks great on your CV, asserting independence and networks!

The call for 2020 opens 8. April, with a deadline 9. September 2020. The budget for the MSCA in Horizon 2020 is still increasing, and for 2020 it is 328 million euro in the IF-call.

Please register before 18 April. Your registration allows us to distribute presentations afterwards.
