EURAXESS Australia and New Zealand had the previlige to deliver a pre-recorded keynote presentation for the European Research Funding Information Session presented by the University of South Australia Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence and the Office of the Deputy Vice Chancellor: Research and Enterprise.

Background

The EU administers research and education funding programs to support activities not just within Europe, but across the globe. Of particular note are the Horizon 2020 Program, ERASMUS+ Jean Monnet Activities, European Research Council (ERC) Grants and Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA). These schemes offer opportunities to support the research, education and/or travel of Australian university staff. Each year the UniSA Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence hosts a European Research Funding Information Session, providing UniSA Staff with the key details related to these schemes. These sessions involve presentations by experts on European research and education funding and provide an invaluable opportunity for UniSA staff to learn about a significant source of funding that exists outside the standard Australian based schemes.

The European Research Funding Information Sessions are normally held on campus with experts travelling from the EU Delegation in Canberra. However, in the COVID-19 landscape of reduced travel and limited public gatherings, the 2020 European Research Funding Information Session is being held virtually with a pre-recorded keynote presentation by Mr Nishant Shandilya, Regional Representative for Australia & New Zealand at EURAXESS Worldwide. In this presentation, Mr Shandilya focusses specifically on the European Research Council (ERC) Grants and Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA). Mr Shandilya outlines the policy rationale, structure and key thematic areas of these grant programs. The presentation sketches the specific requirements and steps for Australian applications to be correctly made under each scheme. The key questions covered include:

  • What topics, themes, disciplines do these funding schemes cover?

  • What is the process to apply for funding under these schemes?

  • What extra requirements and conditions there are for Australian applicants?

  • Who can Australian applicants contact for advice regarding their applications?
