The UK Research Office (UKRO), in its capacity as UK National Contact Point for the Horizon Europe 2021 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA), is holding a information webinar for organisations and individuals interested in applying to the MSCA Researchers at Risk 2021 Call (call opened 2 September 2021 and closes 6 January 2022).
Aim of the webinars
The webinar aims to provide participants with comprehensive overview of the call, including the budget, as well as tips on how to develop your proposal.
Researchers at Risk under MSCA
The 2021 Researchers at Risk call is expected to build on the results of the 2019 initiative "InSPIREurope". The 2021 call aims to support national and international organisations working with researchers at risk to further enhance and professionalise their activities. The support action should take into consideration existing and new challenges, such as the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic. It should further facilitate and strengthen cooperation and linkages between European, national and institutional initiatives and programmes, increasing awareness on why researchers are at risk, as well as identifying and delivering the best possible solutions.
Who should attend?
The webinars are aimed at researchers and other staff in UK academic and non-academic organisations, who are interested in the 2021 Researchers at Risk call.
The webinar will be held on 6 October 2021 13:00-14:30 UK Time.
Attendance is free of charge, but registration is mandatory. Upon registering, a confirmation email will be sent with joining instructions.
This webinar will be delivered using the 'Zoom' online conference facility. No prior purchasing of software is necessary, but prior registration is mandatory. Please note that there will be scope to test the Zoom software prior to joining the webinar itself.
