PD Sessions @ Zoom

The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions are the European Union’s reference programme for doctoral education and postdoctoral training. MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowships (MSCA-PF) enhance the creative and innovative potential of researchers holding a PhD and who wish to acquire new skills through advanced training, international, interdisciplinary, and inter-sectoral mobility and are open to excellent researchers of any nationality.

The session will focus on the Global Postdoctoral Fellowships component of the MSCA-PF which are open to European nationals or long-term residents who wish to engage in R&I projects with organisations outside EU Member States and Horizon Europe Associated Countries. The session will delve into the nitty-gritty of hosting postdoctoral researchers 100 % funded by the European Commission for up to 2 years.
