The Swedish Research Council is funding MSCA Post Doctoral European Fellowship reserve candidates

It is now possible for researchers who applied for the grant Post Doctoral European Fellowship 2023 within Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) programme, and were the highest ranked reserves, to receive funding from the Swedish Research Council. This only applies to researchers with a Swedish administrating organisation.

Now that all applicants in the call for Post Doctoral European Fellowship 2023 have received their grant decisions, some of them have been granted funds and others have ended up on the reserve list.

The Swedish Research Council has National Contact Point (NCP) responsibility for the EU’s Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) programme. We are now offering funding for researchers who applied for the grant and were the highest ranked reserves and also received a Seal of Excellence. The offer only applies for researchers that applied with a Swedish administrating organisation.

It is the organisation that will be hosting the project – the administrating organisation – that shall apply for the grant. The Swedish Research Council will contact the organisations in question.

The administrating organisation must be approved by the Swedish Research Council. In addition to our general grant terms and conditions, specific EU terms and conditions also apply. The grant must only be used to fund activities in Sweden, and the grant period is 12–24 months, depending on the grant period applied for in the original application to the EU.
