Re: MSCA-IF awardees in 2019 and academics networking

I would imagine that more people would have been called from the reserve list this year by virtue of COVID-19 - there are so many ways in which this can change personal and professional situations that would make the funding irrelevant to people's plans, as well as ways in which travel (and fieldwor...

Re: Research, training and networking costs

Some institutions include these costs in the monthly researcher salary, so maybe it's possible for them to be paid at the end too?

Re: 2020 Marie Curie Individual Fellowship (H2020-MSCA-IF-2020)

11573 applications will be evaluated by 4000 external experts, that's approximately 3 applications per expert. It is not that much, I was expecting at least 10-15 applications per expert ... Some more useful numbers... https://ec.europa.eu/info/news/record-number-applications-msca-if-2020-call-2020...

Re: 2020 Marie Curie Individual Fellowship (H2020-MSCA-IF-2020)

I am resubmitting my proposal from last year and have a question: I got reserve list last year, and I see that we are not supposed to include our evaluation results in the application- evaluators will be instructed to ignore it if it is in there. Does this include the CV? I.e., can I include that I...

a couple specific questios about resubmissions, maybe someone with experience can help me: 1. even if only the supervisor is changed, but host and research topic stays the same, it is not a resubmission, right? 2. for resubmissions, could the evaluators be the same as last year, or will there be ne...

Re: MC Salary problem in Germany

That's correct - the MSCA salary is calculated by the European Commission, based on a fixed base salary and country coefficient grid. This protects individual researchers from the precarity of academics under contemporary market societies. My suggestion would be to tell the HR department to raise ev...

Re: 2020 Marie Curie Individual Fellowship (H2020-MSCA-IF-2020)

It's really troubling that so many people have unfortunately lost their employment outside academia for reasons that are outside of their control. Are you saying that unemployment is affecting post-PhD level people? I haven't heard of many cutbacks at universities yet - have you? I'm not aware of wh...
