Proposal Preparation Training for Individual Fellowships Call 2016 – Webinar & Workshops

The Irish Marie Sklodoska Curie Office (IMSCO) is offering two types of training to assist applicants to the Individual Fellowships Call 2016 (deadline 14th September 2016):

1) Webinar: a training webinar took place on 4th July. The webinar was recorded and is available below: The following documents are also webinar related:

2) Workshops: A series of proposal writing workshops hosted at various Higher Education Institutions and centrally in the IUA Offices  in Merrion Square Dublin.  See below for details. There is a limited number of places at these workshops. Priority will be given to researchers applying to the 2016 call with an Irish organisation as their host organisation. If there is strong demand for the IUA-based workshops, extra dates will be added. The IUA-based workshops are open to applicants, supervisors of applicants and research officers supporting applications. It often works well if both applicant and supervisor can attend together.

Note 1: The workshops hosted by the Higher Education Institutions are generally open only to those applying with that institution to the 2016 Call. The workshops at the IUA Offices are open to all, with priority given to researchers applying to the 2016 Call with an Irish organisation as their host organisation.  

Note 2: There is significant overlap in the content of the Webinar and the Workshop. It is more efficient to attend one training event (webinar or workshop) rather than both.
