The Estonian Research Council wll organise two English-language info days on the 2018 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships in Tartu and Tallinn. In Tartu, the info day will take place on 24 April in the premises of the University of Tartu, and in Tallinn on 4 May in the premises of the Tallinn University of Technology (Registration below).
Both researchers who are interested in applying for the grant themselves, as well as potential supervisers who would like to bring post-docs from abroad to their teams, are welcome to participate.
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 2018 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships was opened on 12 April, with a deadline on 12 September 2018: http://ec.europa.eu/research/participants/portal/desktop/en/opportunities/h2020/calls/h2020-msca-if-2018.html
