All will be held in the Mea House auditorium. The workshops are aimed at colleagues considering applying to these funds and we have information and tips from the relevant National Contact points to share. In the case of the Marie Sklowdowska-Curie Individual Fellowships, there will be an opportunity to hear from colleagues who have been fellows under this scheme.


Please circulate to any colleagues who may be interested. If you cannot make these events please register your interest with Kerri below, and the session may be repeated. All presentations will also be made available here on the blog.
