Marie Sklodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellowships Actions Info-Day
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year, we will not organise any Info-day about the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellowships. However, as the call is identical as last year's you may revisit last year's. Find below the presentations of the MSCA InfoDay we organised at Universitat Pompeu Fabra last year:
- Introduction to the MSCA-IF call (Josep Niubò)
- Tips from a MSCA Evaluator (Dr. Georgios Giannoulis Giannoulopoulos)
- Tips from a current MSCA Fellow (Dr Judit Chamorro-Servent)
Skills and career development
The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) are the main instrument at European Union-level to reinforce the UE's efforts to entice more young women and men to a career in research, promote its attractiveness for top talents from around the world, retain its own researchers and reintegrate those working elsewhere.
The Marie Sklodowska-Curie actions support researchers to establish themselves on a more stable career path and to ensure that they can achieve an appropriate work/life balance, taking into account their family situation. These actions support the career development and training of researchers - with a focus on innovation skills - in all scientific disciplines through worldwide and cross-sector mobility. For this, the MSCA provide grants to PhD candidates as well as to post-doctoral researchers, and encourage transnational, intersectoral and interdisciplinary mobility. They are open to all domains of research and innovation, from basic research up to market take-up and innovation services. Research and innovation fields as well as sectors are chosen freely by the applicants in a fully bottom-up manner.
The MSCA follow a "bottom-up" approach, i.e. individuals and organisations working in any area of research can apply for funding. Several MSCA initiatives promote the involvement of industry etc. in doctoral and post-doctoral research.The Marie Sklodowska-Curie actions ensure excellent and innovative research training as well as attractive career and knowledge-exchange opportunities through cross-border and cross-sector mobility of researchers, to better prepare them for current and future societal challenges.
Mobility rule: at the time of the relevant deadline for submission of proposals (PF) or recruitment by the host organisation (DN) researchers shall not have resided or carried out their main activity in the country of their host organisation for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the reference date. Compulsory national service and/or short stays such as holidays are not taken into account.
Postdoctoral Fellowships (PF)
The goal of MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowships is to enhance the creative and innovative potential of researchers holding a PhD, wishing to acquire new skills through advanced training, international, interdisciplinary and inter-sectoral mobility. MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowships are open to excellent researchers of any nationality, including researchers wishing to reintegrate in Europe, researchers who are displaced by conflict as well as researchers with high potential aiming for a career restart in research. The scheme also encourages researchers to work on research and innovation projects in the non-academic sector.
Doctoral Networks (DN)
The MSCA Doctoral Networks aim to train creative, entrepreneurial, innovative and resilient doctoral candidates, able to face current and future challenges and to convert knowledge and ideas into products and services for economic and social benefit. The MSCA Doctoral Networks will raise the attractiveness and excellence of doctoral training in Europe. They will equip researchers with the right combination of research-related and transferable competences and provide them with enhanced career perspectives in both the academic and non-academic sectors through international, interdisciplinary and inter-sectoral mobility combined with an innovation-oriented mind-set.
