If you are finalising your application for the Marie Skłodowska Curie Actions (MSCA) Postdoctoral Fellowships or are thinking of preparing it for the coming year, this webinar is for you!

MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowships are open to postdoctoral researchers. If you have no more than eight years of experience, are willing to enhance your qualifications and diversify your competences by conducting a research project at a host institution in Europe or China, you should apply for these fellowships. The 2021 call will accept applicants until 12 October.

We will have two experts to provide guidance and practical instructions to all the researchers interested in the fellowships: Anne Maibohm and Marlis Erichsen, Danish National Contact Points and Programme Committee members for MSCA. The Q&A session will be the opportunity to ask for suggestions and clarify your doubts before submitting your applications.

If you are new to the MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowships, you can also read our article to learn more about this funding scheme.

The webinar will take place on ZOOM platform on Wednesday September 22 at 16:00 Beijing time (or 10:00 CEST).
