European Commission Horizon 2020

Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions (MSCA) support the career development and training of researchers – with a focus on innovation skills – in all scientific disciplines through worldwide and cross-sector mobility. During my time as a Marie-Curie International Outgoing Fellow, I participated in a number of programmes aimed at providing information for those wishing to apply to the programme. A short Youtube video of my experience as a Marie Curie Fellow is available here. The slides for my contribution to the seminar “New Horizons in the Humanities” held at the Royal Irish Academy in Dublin are available here. These may be useful for those applying to the Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions.
