*Recordings and slides below*


1,630 researchers from around the world have recently been awarded a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Individual Fellowships (MSCA IF). Now that the hardest has passed, it is now time to implement the fellowship, deal with some bureaucracy, and manage the excitement and anxiety to start a new life event.

The workshop is a Practical Guide about how to navigate the fellowship. Our speakers should cover:

  • how to implement your fellowship

  • how to plan the actions, deliverables, and requirements

  • have your doubts and questions answered

  • where to find support

It is also an opportunity to meet other new fellows and hear the experiences and tips from former and present fellows.
