Mock Assessment Workshop: Annual Training Session for Candidates of Marie Curie Post-Doctoral Fellowships

Are you planning to apply for a Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellowship for a post-doc abroad? Uppsala Forum organises a workshop, where you participate in two half-day meetings, in collaboration with Doctoral Student Forum and EU Funding Office for the Humanities and Social Sciences, to help PhD candidates in the later part of their doctoral programs and new PhD holders at Uppsala University to prepare a winning proposal. 

The workshop is held in the IRES Library, at Gamla torget 3, 3rd floor, Uppsala University, with the first part taking place on April 18, 2024 and the second part on June 11, 2024. Participation via Zoom can be facilitated.

Last day for registration is April 8, 2024. Register by e-mailing Uppsala Forum Administrator Mattias Vesterlund.

A transdisciplinary panel of local and international scholars will provide scientific feedback on your draft application, and you will receive advice on how to prepare your proposal and hear from earlier grant-receivers about their experience.


You give a short presentation of the plotline of your project idea and host institutions.

You send in your draft proposal on a proposed date prior to the second workshop to Mattias Vesterlund. An earlier draft proposal instruction is available here.

During the second workshop each applicant presents the draft research project before a panel of scholars in a mock assessment session and receives scientific input on the project.

The presentations of earlier grant receivers can be seen via this link.
