The Marie Skłodowska-Curie 2017 Fellowships are part of the Horizon 2020 programme.

Proposals are joint submissions between the Fellow and his/her host Department/supervisor. A key objective of the fellowships is career development and skills aquisition so planned training must be addressed in the application alongside research objectives. 

Research fields are chosen freely by the applicants and all research disciplines offered at Oxford are eligible for funding.

The grant provides an allowance to cover your living, travel and family costs. Research costs and overheads of the host organisation are also supported. 

There are two fellowships available: European Fellowships (EFs) and Global Fellowships (GFs).

Draft copies of the Horizon 2020 work programmes

You may like to be aware that we now have access to draft copies of the 2018-2020 (2018 for the ERC) Horizon 2020 Work Programmes. We have this access on the understanding that drafts will not be shared outside Oxford.

Draft Work Programmes can be accessed through the scoping papers page of the Gateway to Europe website (you will need your SSO to access the draft WP page). As of today (15/06/2017) the following drafts are available:

• Research Infrastructure

• ERC

• Marie Curie

• all Societal Challenges except SC3 (energy)

• European Innovation Council (EIC) – which includes FET Open and the Horizon 2020 Prizes

• SWAFS

• ICT

• Space

Work Programme drafts go through a number of iterations before they are finalised. The naming convention we are using includes a revision number. Please visit the webpage on a regular basis to ensure that you have the most up to date version to which we have access.

Please also bear in mind that the contents of the draft work programmes is subject to change until finalised (expected to be in October – July for the ERC 2018 work programme).
