Applicant information

The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship call opened 14 April 2020.

The University of Bath is providing a proposal support service for this year’s Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) Individual Fellowships (IF) scheme. Research and Innovation Services (RIS) is providing assistance to Bath's host Principal Investigators (PIs) and fellowship applicants, to help develop their proposals.

The Marie Curie Fellowships provide significant financial support to a Research Fellow for a period of 12-24 months on any research topic. Candidates must have either a doctoral degree or at least 4 years’ full-time research experience, post-Bachelor degree, by the time of the call deadline.

All research areas are eligible for funding, with the grant providing an allowance to cover living, travel and family costs. In addition, the grant contributes to the training, networking and research costs of the fellow, as well as to the management and indirect costs of the project.

Actions being supported

The two actions we are supporting are:

European Fellowship (EF)

This fellowship is designed for researchers willing to develop their career in Europe at the University of Bath, outside their home country. European Fellows may come from any country except the UK. If already in the UK, the Fellow must have been resident for less than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the submission deadline. These schemes can be used to recruit postdoctoral researchers, or host more senior non-UK based research visitors.

Global Fellowship (GF)

Fellows are seconded to a country outside Europe (non-EU/AC country) for 12-24 months, and a mandatory 12 month return to Europe/AC host (Bath). University of Bath academics could apply to this scheme for:

  • coinciding with a scheduled sabbatical
  • attracting an EU postdoc back to Bath after a 12-24 month period outside Europe

In both situations we will work with you and your nominated host on your application.

MSCA IFs and Brexit

The Withdrawal Agreement means that the UK can continue to participate in EU programmes, including Horizon 2020, that are financed by the 2014-2020 Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) until their closure (i.e. for the lifetime of grants).

UK participants will continue to receive EU grant funding for the lifetime of individual Horizon 2020 projects, including projects finishing after the transition period ends at the end of 2020. UK scientists, researchers and businesses can continue to participate in and lead Horizon 2020 projects and apply for Horizon 2020 grant funding.

Further information about continued UK participation in Horizon 2020 can be found on the dedicated UKRI website.
