Marie Sklodowska Curie Individual Fellowship activities 2017

The Marie Sklodowska Curie Individual Fellowships call for proposal 2017 will be launched on 11 April with deadline on 14 September 2017.

Research Services will offer two training activities in preparation for the call. You may register for either or both:

  1. An on-line training course aimed at proposals with Lund University as host institution. The training course is aimed at both supervisor and fellow. The supervisor registers participation in the course.
  2. A short information session 4 April aimed at all interested researchers at LU, fellows as well as supervisors.

The MSCA Individual Fellowships

The MSCA Individual Fellowships offer opportunities to:

  1. Recruit an experienced researcher from abroad, or
  2. Extend a post-doc period for a fellow already at LU for a period of 12-24 months.

Note that a mobility rule applies for the fellowships, i.e. at the deadline for the submission of applications, the fellow can have resided or carried out her main activity in the country of the host organisation for no more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the deadline.

You can find more information on the MSCA Individual Fellowships here. 

MSCA Individual Fellowships online training course

The course is aimed at proposals with Lund University as host institution. i.e. the scientist in charge at Lund University as well as at the prospective fellow. It will enable both to access a comprehensive set of training tools, including introductory slides with audio, walk-through modules, factsheets and checklists, all available up to the deadline. Staff from Research Services will also be available for support throughout the process.

Start date: 3 April. The course is flexible and the material will be available online until the deadline in September to be used by the supervisor and fellow at their convenience.

Objective of the training course: to provide participants with a good understanding of the principles and evaluation criteria and process of the MSCA-IF. Participants will receive strategic and practical input for writing a competitive application. The application is written jointly by the supervisor and the fellow.

Training: The workshop is run by Yellow Research, a consultancy firm with extensive experience in running MSCA workshops and in pre-submission review of MSCA grants.

Registration: Register for the training course here. Deadline for registration is 22 March. Limited number of places available. It is the supervisor at LU who registers for the course. Supervisors who have a named, eligible fellow at the registration deadline will be prioritized. For questions, please contact Teresia Rindefjäll


MSCA Individual Fellowships information seminar

On 4 April, Research Services offers an information seminar for LU researchers interested in either hosting a fellow or going on a fellowship. During the seminar, brief information on the funding scheme will be provided. The main focus, however, will be presentations from LU researchers who have experience from writing a successful MSCA-IF application and reviewing MSCA-IF proposals. There will be ample time for questions and discussion.

Date and time: 4 May, 13.00-15.00

Venue: Hörsalen, Pufendorfinstitutet, Biskopsgatan 3, Lund

Registration: register via this link at the latest on 25 April.
