MSCA Staff Exchanges – Webinar

The MSCA staff exchange action funds short-term international and inter-sectoral exchanges of staff members involved in research and innovation activities of participating organisations. The aim is to develop sustainable collaborative projects between different organisations from the academic and non-academic sectors, based in Europe and beyond.

The webinar wil be held on 14 December 09:30 – 11:00, and with contribution from the Research Executive Agency (REA) and a testimony from SINTEF, who is work package leader in the project “DISCO2 STORE”. The call itself has a deadline on 8. March 2023.

Why take part in the webinar? Well for one, the success rates have been encouraging at 25ish %. The action is completely bottom-up and open to all disciplines, and is mainly focused on the mobility and the transfer of knowledge. The diversity in projects is big, and although traditionally dominated by projects within the realms of the engineering panel, projects from the SSH and life sciences are most welcome. This scheme simply allows for fruitful collaborations with colleagues in other sectors and parts of the world.

Time/Place:  14 Dec 09:30 – 11:00; Digital: Live streaming, video recording will be available
