Marie Skłodowska-Curie Week in Eurac Research
18-22 May 2020
What is the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Week?
Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships (IF), funded under Horizon 2020, give interested researchers the possibility to develop their career path by conducting a specific research project accompanied by tailor-made training activities. The Fellowship takes place at a host institution abroad over a period of 12-24 months. Individual Fellowship follow a bottom-up approach, i.e. research fields are chosen freely by the applicants. To be successful, the funding application must be prepared in collabor ation with a prospective host institution.
Eurac Research has been organizing the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Week in Bolzano since 2016. This year, we will organize a webinar series from 18 to 22 May 2020 instead of a in-person event. Like our usual Marie Skłodowska-Curie Week, the webinar series offers a great opportunity to prepare an application with Eurac Research as a host. Over the course of the online workshop, the candidates work on the project proposal with experienced researchers from Eurac Research, get detailed information from MSC fellows, and are trained by an MSC evaluator on the dos-and-don'ts of the proposal phase.
Download the preliminary program for the MSC Week 2020 and event programmes from 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019.
