Applying for Marie Skłodowska-Curie grants is highly competitive. So applicants have to be well prepared and highly motivated to compile a convincing proposal. The aim of this short course is to provide general information about the funding schemes and evaluation processes, recommendations and tips to future applicants.

The workshop will include:
1) General presentation of the MSCA calls
2) Individual Fellowships: This part of the workshop will give an introduction and background information of the program and the evaluation process by a Vice-Chair of the “Environmental and Geosciences” evaluation panel. You will get recommendations and tips and the experience of a grantee. This year the grantee will be José Alberto Padron Navarta from Montpellier.
3) European Training Network: This part of the workshop will give a brief introduction and overview on how to apply for ETNs as international scientific multi-partner research training networks and show I) the most important general parts of proposals, II) how to avoid pitfalls and III) how to implement successful management already at this early stage.

Why attend?
In this hands-on workshop, participants will get the basics of how to prepare competitive MSCA proposals and how to shape it so that it is aligned with the objectives of the Marie Curie programme.

Who is this training course for?
The target audience is early-career and established researchers as well as project managers involved in the pre-proposal phase, who are I) currently preparing a MSCA-IF or MSCA-ITN-ETN proposal, II) have in the past unsuccessfully submitted such proposals and would like to try again, or III) who have very concrete ideas about a proposal they want to prepare, but are unsure how to approach this.
