The training is specifically designed for researchers and hosts planning to submit a proposal in the next call for Postdoctoral Fellowships with indicative opening in May 2021. Non-applicants (research support units or similar) are welcome to participate as well, provided there are still places available.

Participation is free of charge. The training will be held in English.

Please note:
The number of participants for this training is limited as we want to ensure interactivity and enough time for discussions. The technical registration does not alone qualify for a participation, and we reserve the right to decline registrations that do not fit the target group. Preference will be given to applicants fulfilling the following conditions:

  • Submission in current call planned
  • Country of destination for the planned MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowship is Austria
  • Participants are eligible fellows or their supervisors. Eligibility criteria (based on indicative information about the call details):
    • Mobility rule: Recruited researchers must not have resided or carried out their main activity in the country of destination for more than 12 months within the past 3 years immediately before the call deadline. For the Global Postdoctoral Fellowships, the researcher must comply with the mobility rule in the country for the outgoing phase (not for the return phase).
    • Note: For researchers wishing to reintegrate to Europe from a Third Country, there must be a direct mobility to Europe within the last 12 months before the call deadline.
    • Supported researchers can be of any nationality. However, researchers applying for a Global Postdoctoral Fellowship or researchers who wish to reintegrate to Europe, must be nationals or long-term residents of a European Member State or a Horizon Europe Associated Country. Long-term residence means a period of legal and continuous residence within EU Member States or Horizon Europe Associated Countries of at least five consecutive years.
    • At the call deadline, researchers must have a maximum of 8 years full-time equivalent experience in research, measured from the date that the researcher was in a possession of a doctoral degree. Years of experience outside research and career breaks are not taken into account. For reintegration to Europe, years of experience in research in Third Countries will not be considered in the above maximum.
