On 18 November 2014, the MSCA will organise the second Awards Ceremony of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Prizes, which will take place at the Italian EU Presidency conference Empowering the Next Generation of Researchers in Trento .
This year there will be three categories:
The selection criteria are available here for each category:
The contest is open for all FP7 MSCA Fellows and alumni. Please note that the Communicating Science prize is open to early stage and experienced researchers, the Promising research talent is open to fellows who have obtained their research results as an early stage researcher (i.e. no PhD or less than 4 years of experience), and the Nurturing Research Talents is open to experienced researchers (hold a PhD degree, or more than 4 years of experience).
More information on how to submit your application is available in the form.
Please note that the "Promising Research Talent" category is restricted to ITN fellows or former ITN fellows (i.e. researchers who benefitted from a Marie Curie individual fellowship, like IEF, IOF, or IIF, cannot apply).
The prize is symbolic: the award winner will have their travel and accommodation costs for the conference reimbursed and receive a certificate signed by the EU Commissioner for Education.
Below is an indicative calendar:
