Target Audience: Academic/Research staff - all levels
This interactive session will provide proposal development support to colleagues wishing to submit a proposal to the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships (IF) scheme within Horizon 2020 (next deadline: 12 September 2018).
The aim of the Individual Fellowships scheme is to enhance the creative and innovative potential of experienced researcher through advanced training and international and intersectoral mobility. The scheme supports individual, transnational fellowships awarded to the most promising researchers of any nationality. Applications are made jointly by the researcher and the host organisation. Researchers must undertake transnational mobility in order to be eligible for the MSCA funding.
Participants will gain an understanding of the key considerations involved in planning, writing and submitting an IF proposal, including:
- An overview of the types of fellowships and the funding model
- What makes a competitive candidate
- Detailed information on the evaluation criteria, including lessons learned from evaluation of both successful and unsuccessful Strathclyde proposals
- Hints and tips on what to include in each section of the proposal
- An overview of the application process
Participants will also have the opportunity to hear from a successful grantee.
This session will be particularly useful for colleagues who wish to host a fellow and are either currently preparing proposals for the 2018 call (deadline 12 September 2018) or planning to apply in future years.
At the end of the session, you will have:
- Developed an understanding of the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Individual fellowship scheme; including what can be funded, the application process, deadlines, funding levels
- Received detailed information on the evaluation criteria, as well as hints and tips on what to include in each section of the proposal
- Heard hints and tips for a colleague who has applied for and been awarded an Individual Fellowship
