Could be. I am sure that the factor of luck is very very mandatory to get MSCA grant.
Yes, I think that the luck is very important in this fellowship. For example, this is my first submission and I obtained my PhD last year and I am convinced that I am not going to get it because others researchers more experienced than me have applied too.
That does not mean a thing. I know people that got it after first submission straight after PhD. I also know of people with lots of experience and nature papers that failed and I also know of researcher with experience and high If papers that got it. Since luck plays an important role, experience does not matter. You also need to think that there are people that have applied 3 or 4 times and still did not get it.
Lucky and excellence are the most important.
Go to FB page of MSCA you will find some portraits of MSCA winners. Search for them and you will find that many of them have very few citations. I think CV is irrelevant.

Madness!
As expected, as soon as the horrid "link" comes up, everyone is disoriented.

- What is your status ?
- My status is final.
- Holy crap. My status is submission.
- But mine is still final.
- Mine says evaluation
- Different links, folks. Official vs nonsensical.
- But Berrylium! mine is submission.
- Please help. My status is final. Does this mean I got rejected?
- [troll] Mine says grant preparation. See you later.
- Oh no. My status is still final. I think I'm gone.
- Screw all this. Delete account.
- Chill folks. The backdoor is just nonsense.
- But I check the backdoor link 10 times a day.
- My status is single. Anyone else?
- My status has not changed for 36.4 seconds. On both links. I think this means I got under 70%.
- NCP says results are early.
- My NCP says results will be late.
- My friend's mother's cat's uncle's brother's cousin is an evaluator. They said results will be on 26Jan at 01:00 Brussels time.
- My status is still submission. What can I do now?
- Status final. In the name of Marie Curie, what does this mean?
- My NCP does not pick my calls anymore.



[Continues for the next 100 pages]
Shapovalov, you have a great sense of humor!!!
My status is also single by the way :lol:
I myself believe that the result will be announced on Feb 11 according to the timeline listed in the portal, but I am not patient enough to wait diplomatically so I've come here to seek for comfort.

I have heard from someone in bruxelles that if you use too many time the infamous link to check the status, commission will flag you under the obsessive compulsive disorder and won't give you the fellowship.

:lol: :lol: I do check the status of everything crazy frequently not only this one alone! The status of paper submissions is my other obsession, let alone the tweets (for likes by followers). I guess I need to see a doctor :cry: :shock:

I’m really sorry I brought up the status issue a few pages back. My bad. I didn’t want to restart the drama of last year at all. Let’s change the subject. What are people’s projects going to be looking at and where do you want to carry out your research?

LOL is too late now. We can change the subject however in a couple of post the damn link will be back.

Anyway, I will look at endocrine disruptors and infertility. My host is in Spain.

Yeah, I think I might have made a mess of things really! Again, apologies! Cool project. Whereabouts in Spain are you going? I’m applying for an SE fellowship to work in a biotech startup in Dublin using AI to find peptides to slow down muscle loss in aging. I’ve been a postdoc in San Diego for 7 years and I’m really hoping to get out of academia and also back home to Ireland so this fellowship would be ideal!
