Seal of excellence – Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions

Within the frame of the national Swedish Strategy group for EU-Coordination, there is now the opportunity to get funding to work as a researcher in Sweden via Seal of Excellence.

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?

All researchers who applied for an Individual Fellowship within MSCA to come to Sweden. The researcher should also have been awarded the Seal of Excellence certificate by the EU Commission and included on the reserve list. This applies to researchers regardless of nationality.
