This info session on Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) Doctoral Networks 2021 call is organised by the National Contact Points (NCPs) for MSCA in Belgium (NCP Federal BE, NCP-FNRSNCP Flanders) to inform potential applicants and institutions from both the academic and non-academic sector.

The MSCA Doctoral Networks 2021 call is expected to open in May (provisional opening date: 18/05/2021) with a deadline on 16 November 2021. Doctoral Networks are consortia of at least 3 different entities (e.g. universities, research institutions and research infrastructures, businesses including SMEs, and other socio-economic actors)  in different EU Member States and Horizon Europe Associated Countries, from various research and innovation areas (bottom-up approach). Supported researchers are doctoral candidates of any nationality. The grant amount depends on the amount of person-months (up to 360, plus 180 PMs depending on the type) and have a duration of up to 48 months. During this information session the objectives of DNs, call modalities and hands-on information on the application submission and evaluation process will be provided.

Due to the measures with regard to the ongoing covid-19 pandemic, this info session is completely virtual. Participation to this webinar is free and open to any researcher in any career stage wishing to apply with a Belgian institution or any staff member of a Belgian institution (both from the academic and non-academic sector). Registration is mandatory and open until the 24th of May. You have the possibility to write any question you might have at this stage in the registration form.
