This online training will support you in the process of writing a competitive proposal for the programme Marie Skłodowska-Curie in Horizon Europe. Particular focus of the training is the call for Postdoctoral Fellowships 2023.


The training consists of live, interactive webinars complemented by short e-learning inputs and reflection exercises before and during the training.

We will cover important issues to keep in mind when writing a good proposal, from “Excellence” and “Impact” to “Implementation”. You will learn about topics like the evaluation process and open science and get the chance to discuss with a Postdoctoral Fellow and an MSCA evaluator.

After the training, you will have a good understanding of the rationale of the programme and you will have the tools to start writing your own proposal.

We offer two different training dates, each consisting of two consecutive online sessions plus additional work at home. You can choose the date during registration.
