European CommissionHow to write a competitive proposal

24 May 2016, 09:30–17:30 in Bern

This event is a one-day Training for researchers planning to apply to the 2016 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships Call. You will work with an example proposal, get insight into the evaluation process and have the possibility to learn from a successful applicant.

At the time of the event, participants should already be familiar with the Guide for Applicants, the MSCA Work Programme and the related FAQs, have outlined their proposal and be in contact with their future host institution.

This is not an information event, but will require intense preparation. For basic information, please refer to our Webinar.
