The UK Research Office (UKRO) will now hold the postponed information webinar series for organisations and individuals interested in the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) Postdoctoral Fellowships 2023 call (deadline at 4.00 pm UK time on 13 September 2023) in early June.
These sessions will provide attendees with all the information needed to submit a successful application to this call, including the eligibility criteria, the available budget, submission and evaluation criteria, and practical advice on proposal writing.
These webinars are aimed at researchers, as well as UK academic and non-academic staff, including stakeholders from industry and SMEs, who are interested in the call as a host organisation or potential supervisor. They are also intended for researchers from the UK, across Europe and beyond who intend to apply to the call with a UK host institution.
MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowships help experienced researchers advance their careers and gain new skills through training, international, intersectoral and international mobility.
