Seal of excellence Call – Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions

Researchers who have applied for an Individual Fellowship within MSCA to come to Sweden, and hold a Seal of Excellence Certificate now have the opportunity to get funding, through a Seal of Excellence call, to work as a researcher in Sweden.

The European Commission is awarding Seal of Excellence Certificates to researchers in recognition of their high-quality research proposals under the Marie-Skłodowska Curie Actions. These are being awarded to all researchers whose MSCA Individual Fellowship proposals in 2016 had a score of 85% or above but could not be funded due to the highly-competitive nature of the MSCA programme.

Who can apply?

Researchers who applied for an Individual Fellowship within MSCA to come to Sweden, have been awarded the Seal of Excellence certificate by the EU Commission and have been included on the reserve list can apply. This applies to researchers regardless of nationality.

More information about the call

Vinnova – the Swedish Governmental Agency for Innovation Systems – is responsible for the call, which is funded by the national Swedish Strategy group for EU-Coordination. Read more about the Seal of Excellence in the call text.
