The objectives & added value of this online course:

Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Postdoctoral Fellowship (MSCA-PF) is a post-doctoral individual fellowship that is considered to be highly prestigious and competitive. It provides researchers with a unique opportunity to acquire and transfer new knowledge and skills, as well as to expand their networks and disciplinary borders through international, interdisciplinary and inter-sectoral mobility. 


In this course, we cover everything you need to know in order to propose a competitive MSCA-PF application. Our course focuses on providing participants with a thorough and deep understanding of the MSCA-PF’s rules and requirements, together with tips and insights from our work with MSCA-PF applicants specifically, and Horizon Europe projects in general. 


During the course, we keep in mind the most important grant writing aspect – the point of view of the reviewers. By understanding what reviewers are looking for, we know exactly what researchers should focus on and what they should avoid when writing their application, and make sure to emphasize these issues throughout the course.

Among other topics, we will go over eligibility rules and guidelines, types of PF actions, funding & budget, the proposal’s structure and writing tips, the evaluation process and more.
