Please read all the instructions before filling in this form, including the eligibility requirements and the issues we expect to be covered in your research proposal.

Note that all uploaded files must be in PDF format.

In order to check your eligibility as a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Early Stage Researcher, it is essential that we have the exact date on which you were awarded the degree that entitles you to begin a PhD - usually this would be a Masters. If you have more than one Masters, this must be the first, independent of field.

It is also essential that we have full information on your country/ies of residence over the last three years and your research experience since your first degree.

For family status, please note that according to the Marie Skłodowska-Curie criteria, a researcher is considered to "have family charges" if they are "married or have a relationship with equivalent status to a marriage recognised by the national legislation of the country of the host organisation or of the nationality of the researcher, and/or have charge of children".

Please check very carefully that you have entered your e-mail address correctly in both relevant fields.
