Funding Your Research: Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (Online Training)

Are you looking to strengthen your organisation’s research and innovation capacity? Would you like to create new international and intersectoral collaborations?

The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions provide an excellent opportunity for civil society organisations to access excellent researchers, funded by the EU, to support their research and innovation interests and activities.

Jane Carrigan, the Irish National Contact Point for MSCA, joins us for a discussion on how community and voluntary organisations can benefit from this funding programme.

Topics covered will include:

  • An overview of the MSCA programme
  • Opportunities for the community and voluntary sector within MSCA
  • Examples of successfully funded participations
  • Supports available
  • Q&A.

This event is brought to you by The Wheel’s Access Europe programme and the Irish Marie Skłodowska Curie Office, and will provide an overview of the opportunities available to the community and voluntary sector through the EU’s Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) funding programme.

Access Europe is funded by the Department of Foreign Affairs.
