Funding opportunities in the EU for creative minds from anywhere in the world

Saturday, 15 February 2014: 10:30 AM-11:30 AM
Grand Ballroom D North (Hyatt Regency Chicago)
This workshop for early-career researchers will explain the aim and complementarities of two EU funding schemes: Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) and the European Research Council (ERC), as well as provide answers to practical questions such as: How can the ERC, MSCA and EURAXESS support research careers? What are the selection criteria and how long is the selection process? How does the application process work? How many researchers are funded each year? What are the chances of success? Where to find information on the EURAXESS portal? In addition, a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellow and an ERC Starting Grantee will be present to share their experiences with these funding initiatives and will answer questions.
