MSCA Training Camp: Igniting International Collaboration and Research Excellence

The School of Humanities at Tallinn University hosted from 10-14 July the Marie Curie Postdoctoral Fellowship (MSCA) Training Camp, a transformative event that brought together 12 participants from 11 countries.

Over the course of five intense days, the participants engaged in comprehensive training, while also finding time to socialize, network, and discuss ideas for future collaborations.

Although this training camp marked a significant milestone and provided a platform for participants to enhance their grant-writing skills and develop strong project proposals, there is still work to be done. The candidates will continue working closely with their supervisors and research advisors to refine their applications in anticipation of the MSCA call deadline in September.

We are proud of the achievements and positive feedback from participants, which motivate us to continue organizing these events. We firmly believe that investing in our colleague´s development nurtures ground-breaking research, fosters innovation, and enhances our academic community´s collective expertise.

Special thanks go to Ruth Noyes, a distinguished Marie Curie Fellow and trainer, and Jitka Eryilmaz, an expert evaluator of MSCA, whose expertise and guidance were invaluable throughout the training process. We would also like to acknowledge the vital contribution of Stéphane Lobbedey and Xavier Dubois, advisors from the Project Support Office at Tallinn University, for their continuous support and assistance.
