    H2020 - Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) Conference

    27-05-2016, 12:00–14:00 in Genève
    Deadline passed on

    At this event you will get information on project funding’s opportunities and upcoming calls for proposals within the MSCA funding schemes under the European HORIZON 2020 framework programme for research and innovation (H2020). These funding schemes provide grants for all stages of researchers' careers - be they doctoral candidates or highly experienced researchers - and encourage transnational, intersectorial and interdisciplinary mobility. The MSCA enable research-focused organisations to host talented foreign researchers and to create strategic partnerships.

    MSCA in H2020 is divided into 4 funding schemes: Individual Fellowships (IF); Innovation Training Networks (ITN); Research and Innovation Staff Exchange Scheme (RISE) and Cofunding of existing or new PhD and postdoc fellowship programmes (COFUND). This information event will provide you with an overview of all these types of MSCA, with a special focus on the currently open calls for IF (deadline: 14.09.2016) and COFUND (29.09.2016).
