ABOUT MSCA-IF FUNDING?
MSCA-IF funding enhances the creative and innovative potential of experienced researchers wishing to diversify their individual competence in terms of skill acquisition through advanced training, international and inter-sectoral mobility.
It provides opportunities to acquire and transfer new knowledge and to work on research within or outside Europe (i.e. European or Global Fellowships).
Calls are open to researchers of any age, nationality or discipline, with a bottom-up approach, i.e. research fields are chosen freely by the applicants.

MENTORING SESSIONS (OPTIONAL)
Dr. Catherine Halbert will also provide mentoring sessions in the afternoon (from 1500 to 1700). When you make your booking for the workshop please indicate if you need ‘group’ or ‘individual’ mentoring.
