Information zum Seminar

The Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions (MSCA) provide grants for all stages of researchers' careers be they doctoral candidates or highly experienced researchers. They encourage transnational, intersectoral and interdisciplinary mobility and aim to equip researchers with the necessary skills and international experience for a successful career, either in the public or the private sector. MSCA have a bottom-up approach and are open to all domains of research and innovation, from fundamental research to market take-up and innovation services.
In the first part of this seminar we will provide an overview of the different funding opportunities within the Marie Skłodowska-Curie programme with a special focus on the Individual Fellowships. Individual Fellowships support the mobility of researchers within and beyond Europe and enable research stays of up to two years in scientific institutions or in the non-academic sector. They are  targeted at postdoctoral researchers in the early stages of their scientific career.
During the second part of the seminar we will discuss the application form in detail, highlight the important elements and provide you with tips and tricks on how best to write your application.
