European Research Funding – European Research Council (ERC) and the Marie Skłodowska Curie Actions (MSCA)

The European Union’s framework programme for research and innovation, Horizon 2020, like the forthcoming research framework programme, Horizon Europe, offers a variety of funding opportunities for researchers returning to Europe from United States and Canada. Attractive funding schemes, such as the grants from the European Research Council (ERC) and the Marie Skłodowska Curie Actions (MSCA), are aimed at postdocs of any discipline.
The workshop provides information on the respective application modalities and offers practical tips on how to apply. In the interactive lecture, a successful applicant and experts from the science scene will report on their experiences, present services, and contact points for internationally mobile researchers. The workshop is aimed at researchers who are interested in funding opportunities in Germany and Europe and would like to find out more about career paths in science. Research managers are also cordially invited to attend the workshop to find out about EU research funding and services.
