As you might know, the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) under Horizon2020 EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation contribute to excellent research, boosting jobs, growth and investment by equipping researchers with the new knowledge, skills and international and intersectoral exposure to fill the top positions of tomorrow and solve current and future societal challenges. The MSCA thrive by being open to all domains of research and innovation addressed under the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union. These are chosen freely by the applicants in a fully bottom-up manner.
During the Calls Conference, detailed information about the contributions of Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) to the European Research Area, future objectives and the upcoming calls of 2018 – 2019 – 2020 will be presented.
Representative from the European Commission, Dr. Stijn Delaure, will be delivering presentations on Individual Fellowships (IF), Innovative Training Networks (ITN), Research and Innovation Staff Exchange (RISE) and Co-funding of Regional, National and International Programmes (COFUND).
Since the Individual Fellowships (IF) call for proposals will be open till 12 September 2018, the event agenda will specifically include proposal preparation, tips-tricks, expert and fellow experiences sessions for this call.
