As UK National Contact Point for Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA), UKRO is holding information events for anyone interested in applying to this year’s MSCA Individual Fellowships call (deadline 14 September 2016).

There will be an event at the University of Edinburgh on 11 May and another in London, hosted by the University of Greenwich on 27 May 2016.

The events will give participants an overview of the application process, the aims of the scheme and key considerations related to planning, writing and submitting proposals. These events are free of charge but you must register to secure a place.

Individual Fellowships are for researchers who already have a doctorate or equivalent research experience. They provide attractive funding to enable researchers to develop their careers through training, international mobility and optional intersectoral secondments. European Fellowships are held in Member States and are open to researchers either coming to Europe or moving within Europe. Global Fellowships are based on a secondment to a third country and a compulsory 12 month return phase in a European host organisation.

If you’d like more info on the individual fellowships scheme or advice on developing an application, please contact your faculty Research Funding and Policy Manager.
