The Research and Strategic Bidding Office is pleased to announce this briefing session covering Marie Curie funding.

The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) supports researchers at all stages of their careers, irrespective of nationality. Proposals from all areas of scientific and technological research of interest are eligible for funding and there are no predefined priority areas. The MSCA also supports industrial doctorates, combining academic research study with work in companies, and other innovative training that enhances employability and career development.
In addition to generous research funding, scientists have the possibility to gain experience abroad and in the private sector, and to complete their training with competences or disciplines useful for their careers.
The session will cover:
- Policy background and overview of Marie Curie Actions
- Objectives of the scheme, eligibility criteria, financial issues
- Proposal submission
- Proposal evaluation
- Q&A session
The University of Northampton has had a number of successful applications to this funding source, therefore we strongly encourage you to consider this opportunity.
Refreshments will be served.
Please reserve your space for catering purposes by Friday 19 June.

Dr Mike Daniel was Pro Rector (Academic Quality) from 1993-2002 and played a major role in guiding the institution towards taught degree awarding powers and university college designation. At his untimely death in 2002 he was preparing the case for full university designation, friends and colleagues raised sufficient funds to create a research degree scholarship to be named after him.
