The University of Limerick invites MSCA-PF applicants to join our support programme for Marie Curie fellowship applicants from May - Sept 2023. We normally provide a Masterclass with travel bursaries to UL for selected applicants in late May each year. Online masterclasses are scheduled during the current pandemic.

This support programme will provide training and individual support on proposal preparation for the 2023 Marie Skłodowska-Cure Postdoctoral Fellowships call for selected participants. The programme is open to eligible applicants who plan to submit a proposal for the 2023 call with University of Limerick as their future Host Institution and who have the support of a UL supervisor. Researchers currently working at UL and who want to apply for a MSCA Global Fellowship are also welcome.

Support Programme

You will receive training and support on all aspects of your Fellowship proposal including societal and economic impact, data management, open science, ethics and responsible research, UL training supports, opportunities for secondments, and much more. This training will help you to make your MSCA-PF proposal much more competitive. You will also work with your host supervisor on the proposal and follow a schedule of ongoing support from our Marie Curie advisors.
