The Research Executive Agency has received 9 875 proposals for the three MSCA Individual Fellowships calls that closed yesterday, 11 September. This represents a small increase compared to last year.
Just over €300 million are available to fund researchers mobility in all areas of science. €6 million are earnmarked to the widening fellowships which aim providing support to researchers to undertake their fellowship in a Widening Country. This year’s proposal submission confirms the increasing trend started in 2014, demonstrating the continued interest from the research community in this Horizon 2020 programme, which is one of the most attractive yet competitive postdoctoral funding schemes in the world.
Some 4,000 experts are expected to support the Research Executive Agency in the evaluation of the proposals.
The evaluation results will be known by February 2020. Successful proposals will be then invited to prepare a Grant Agreement which should be signed by May 2020. For more information about the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions please refer to this page.
