The goal of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie (MSC) Individual Fellowships, funded from the Horizon 2020 programme, is to support the career development of researcher through mobility. Researchers in possession of a PhD can apply for the fellowships to broaden and diversify their competence abroad. In most cases, the so-called mobility criterion applies: applicants must not have resided or worked in the country of the host organisation where they are applying to go for more than 12 months in the last 3 years prior to the call deadline. MSC Individual Fellowships support also reintegration of researchers in Europe after a period of mobility outside Europe, and the return to research after a career break (for example, parental leave). In these cases a more flexible mobility criterion is applied: the duration of stay in the host country must not exceed 3 years in the last 5 years.
The call for applications for the 2017 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships was opened on 11 April, with a deadline on 14 September 2017.
The call page can be found at:
In the first part of the info day, Kristin Kraav (Estonian Research Council) will describe the conditions and rules of the call, and present the application documents. This will be followed by the presentation by Vasileios Petsinis (University of Tartu), who successfully applied for the Marie Skłodowska-Curie European Fellowship in 2016, and continues his career in the University of Tartu with the support of the grant.
