Alma universitas studiorum parmensis A.D. 962 - Università di Parma

WELCOME TO THE MSCA@UNIPR BOOTCAMP 2024

Considering the success of the first edition, the new call will offer a 5-day intensive high-quality training for international post-doctoral researchers who commit to apply for the Horizon Europe Marie Sklodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellowships call 2024, choosing UNIPR as their Host Organisation.

The MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowships targets researchers holding a PhD who wish to carry out their research activities abroad and acquire new skills to develop their careers and foster excellence in research.

The MSCA@UNIPR BOOTCAMP is a 5-day intensive workshop on how to write successful proposals that will take place at UNIPR from 13th to 17th May 2024. The training sessions will be held by experts in project writing and evaluation who will teach you how to develop excellent and innovative project proposals through interactive theorical sessions and practical activities. The candidates will also hear success stories from MSCA-PF awardees and will work directly with their supervisors in dedicated sessions. (See here the provisional agenda).

Selected candidates will receive a reimbursement fee up to a maximum of 1.500 euros for researchers coming to Parma from European countries and up to 2.000 euros for researchers coming from non-European countries, in order to cover Bootcamp-related costs (i.e., travel/accommodation/subsistence).


Deadline for applications is 31st January 2024 at 12 p.m. (CET time).

 

What do you need to do before the deadline?

Step 1: Check the MSCA PF Eligibility Criteria (page 91).

Step 2: Find and contact your supervisor at UNIPR through the dedicated database available in this page.

Step 3: Check and fill out the call documentation available at the bottom of this page.

Step 4: Apply by 31st January 2024 at 12 p.m. (CET time).

WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT US

Read the feedback from researchers that were selected to take part to the first edition of the MSCA @ UNIPR BOOTCAMP 2023. 

1) "The event was well organized and and demystified the entire process of applying for the Marie Curie grant. I mainly highlight the parts that we normally think are not decisive for the score, such as ethics, gender issues and we see how important they are to be well elaborated. the post-training follow-up has been interesting and bringing information and reminding us of important dates".

 

2) "Good platform to understnad the things about MSCA and thanks for the opporatunity I wish in coming days may have good camps which enhance our knowlwdge, thanks to university Pharma and others".

 

3) "Overall, it is a great event! The experience was wonderful".

 

4) "I found the bootcamp extremely usefull, especially considering the fact that I had never applied for a Marie Curie fellowship and I was unaware of most of the info given during the bootcamp. All the UNIPR staff was amazing in every aspect".
