MSCA Seal of Excellence@Unipd

With a view to encouraging a wider participation in the MSCA-IF call and looking forward to collaborating with the most qualified researchers, the University of Padova supports the MSCA Seal of Excellence @UniPD. Through a dedicated call for applications, this funding programme assigns a grant of 50,000 Euro per year to projects that have the University of Padova as their planned Host Institution and, despite not being funded, have obtained the "Seal of Excellence - MSC Actions".

The MSCA Seal of Excellence @UniPD funding programme concerns projects that receive the Seal of Excellence – MSC Actions under the MSCA-IF Calls 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020. It covers a research grant contract (assegno di ricerca) and a budget for research, training and networking expenses.

The Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions (MSCA) are funded under the European Commission's Horizon 2020 programme and aim at supporting the training and career development of researchers. In particular, Individual Fellowships (MSCA-IF) finance their transnational mobility for a period of 12 to 36 months.

Starting with the MSCA 2016 Call, the European Commission has automatically awarded the "Seal of Excellence - Marie Curie Actions" to high quality MSCA-IF proposals which scored 85/100 or above and passed the quality threshold, but could not be funded under the available call budget. The Seal of Excellence recognizes the value of a project proposal and guarantees it has passed a highly competitive evaluation process, thus being recommended for funding by other sources, at national, regional or local level.
