Information day for Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships in Tartu
19 April 2016
at 14:00 – 16:00
In the big hall of OMICUM (Riia Str. 23, room 105)
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 2016 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships will be opened on 12 April, with a deadline on 14 September 2016. The call page can be found at: http://ec.europa.eu/research/participants/portal/desktop/en/opportunities/h2020/calls/h2020-msca-if-2016.html
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 Chandana Basu (University of Tartu), who successfully applied for the Marie Skłodowska-Curie European Fellowship in 2015, and will soon continue her career in the University of Edinburgh with the support of the grant.
