Marie Curie Fellowships – Presentation and Q&A

Do you need a postdoc or research fellow?

Do you want to travel anywhere in the world to carry out research and enhance your career?

Find out how to bid for Marie Curie Fellowships from experienced external bid writer, Dr. Martin Pickard (Grantcraft).

In this presentation – open to all University academic staff, administrators and postgraduate students – Dr. Pickard will outline the European Commission Marie Curie Fellowships scheme and explain how to write a good proposal.

The Fellowships are part of the EC’s “People” Programme within Framework Programme 7 which provides funding for researcher mobility both within and outside the EU. Fellowships usually last between 1 and 2 years and are open to all disciplines.

Fellowships provide a very attractive salary for potential postdocs as well as a relocation allowance, travel allowance, research expenses, and management costs for the institution.

Dr. Pickard has over 20 years of bid-writing experience and has contributed to successful Marie Curie bids across a range of disciplines, from arts and humanities to engineering and life science.

A representative from the University Research Office will also be available to discuss the procedure for submission of a bid and to provide ongoing support for applications.

The event takes place in MB1019 on 22nd March 2011 between 2pm and 4pm. Please contact us to indicate you are attending so that we can get an idea of numbers.
