European Funding Opportunities for Junior Reseachers
The European Research Council (ERC) and the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions offer very attractive funding opportunities for Postdocs of all disciplines. While the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship is a mobility programme allowing to pursue a 2-3 year project abroad, the ERC provides funding to start or consolidate and independent research group. This workshop will provide detailed information about both funding schemes, the proposal requirements and some practical advice on how to write a proposal.
The following questions will be answered during the workshop:
- What kind of funding opportunities and career perspectives does the EU offer for junior researchers in Europe?
- Which preconditions do you need to fulfil in order to apply?
- Who can support you in the application process?
