As the European Commission celebrates the support of over 100,000 researchers through Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions, more fellows are poised to benefit from the opening of the 2017 call.
RKEO are pleased to confirm our arrangements for supporting this high profile call in 2017.
- There will be a two-day bid writing retreat on 18th and 19th April and, subject to demand, this will be repeated on 5th and 6th July (date changed to accommodate another forthcoming event), with bookings now open
- Materials are already available on the MyBU Research & Knowledge Exchange Development Framework Community and will be extended as more materials are made available for the 2017 call
- External bid writing support, where appropriate
As this is a highly popular call, RKEO need to carefully manage the flow of work within RKEO but also for all your colleagues, who work together, to ensure that each application is approved and submitted correctly.
Please endeavour to submit your Intention to Bid to RKEO by 14/07/17. You can, of course, let us know earlier than this date that you intend to apply, so that we can provide you, and your potential fellow, with as much support as possible, right up to the closing date of 14/09/17. It is expected that early drafts should be available around the beginning of August, allowing time for all those involved to manage their workloads, including Faculty Quality Approvers.
Once we know that you are thinking of applying, even before submitting the Intention to Bid, we can keep you up to date with announcements from the funder and other sources of help and support.
If you are considering applying and would like to receive updates, please contact Sara Mundy, RKEO Project Administrator, so that we can register your interest and provide useful information, such as the indicative timetable for actions prior to submission. If you are ready to submit your Intention to Bid, you can do this now, via Sara.
If you have any queries or comments about this scheme, please contact Emily Cieciura, RKEO’s Research Facilitator: EU & International.
