Only in the Czech Republic, your research proposal will have a triple chance of getting funded. First, there is the European funding via Horizon Europe – the MSCA-PF programme. The projects which gain the score of 93 percent or higher will be accepted. However, projects which receive a mark of 70 percent or higher will automatically be eligible for funding from the Czech Structural Funds. This is usually achieved by 80 percent of all applicants! The third option is to apply for ERA Fellowships.
