Pilot domain:

Registration is now open for the AURORA Marie Skłodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellowship (MSCA-PF) Workshop!
The goal of this session is to guide participants through the key information and sections of the call and provide them with skills useful in writing effective and successful fellowship proposals for the upcoming MSCA-PF call.
This is a highly interactive training moment, including some elements of partner work, exercises and discussion, and a special emphasis on sharing and learning from participants’ skills and experiences. To increase impact and applicability, participants will work by practising with real cases whenever possible.

First, participants will be explained the objectives of MSCA-PF grants, eligibility criteria, types of grants, and steps to optimize the grant proposal process. Next, participants will be guided through the development phase of their scientific idea. Finally, they will discuss how to approach the key sections of the proposal, how to address the most important aspects that will be evaluated in each section of the proposal as well as best practices for writing a competitive proposal.
