Challenges and opportunities for the aerospace frontier
22nd FEBRUARY 2021
The main instruments for the development and attraction of talent to the European Union (EU) are the European Research Council (ERC) and the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA).
Over the last decade, the ERC and the MSCA found wide and diverse areas of research of relevance to aerospace and gave many researchers the opportunity to develop their projects with highly competitive conditions. This short webinar is addressed to early-career and experienced researchers and is intended to promote successful proposals for the ERC and MSCA Individual Fellowship grants.
In the first part, EU scientific officers and experts will give an overview on the main characteristics and opportunities offered by the ERC and MSCA-IF funding schemes. Particular attention will be focused on mission, funding, and evaluation process.
In the remaining part of the course, authors of successful ERC and MSCA-IF grant proposals on arguments of aerospace relevance will present their own stories and projects and will give application advice. Details on lessons learnt, proposal writing, preparation of the curriculum vitae, and stage-2 interview will be discussed along with eventual opportunities to join an ERC team.
