Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Postdoctoral Fellowships 2021 call info session


This info session on Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) Postdoctoral Fellowships 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 host institutions from both the academic and non-academic sector.

The MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowships 2021 call is expected to open in May (provisional opening date: 18/05/2021) with a deadline on 15 September 2021. Postdoctoral Fellowships support post-doctoral research and careers in all scientific fields. Supported researchers have a PhD and a maximum of 8 years of post-PhD research experience. Host institutions need to be located in an EU Member State or Horizon Europe Associated Country. The grant amount depends on the amount of person-months. The postdoctoral fellowships have a duration between 12 and 36 months (depending on the type). During this information session the objectives of PFs, 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 host institution or any staff member of a Belgian host institution (both from the academic and non-academic sector). Registration is mandatory and open until the 2nd of June. You have the possibility to write any question you might have at this stage in the registration form. Please take this opportunity, as all the questions raised beforehand will be addressed in the relevant presentations. There will be time for Questions and Answers after each presentation by chat, however, more questions will probably be answered in the timeframe of the webinar if most of the questions have already been raised in advance.


In case you would have any question, please do not hesitate to contact one of the organisers:
