3-   Do you want to be an EVALUATOR for the European Commission?

Experienced Indian researchers should seriously consider applying as expert evaluators, i.e. to be part of panels for the evaluation of proposals for research projects submitted under Horizon 2020.  Acting as an evaluator (with EC remuneration) will allow you better understand which criteria characterise a "good" proposal and, during your evaluation meetings in Brussels, will also allow you to network with other high-level researchers in the same field, potentially paving the way for future collaboration. For more information and to apply for such a registration, please visit http://ec.europa.eu/research/participants/portal/desktop/en/experts/index.html .

4-   Apply now for Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship

Experienced / post-doctoral researchers (PhD or at least 4 years of full-time research experience) from India are eligible for 'Individual Fellowship- European Fellowships' (MSCA-IF-EF-ST-Standard). Last date for submission of application- 14 September 2016 @17h00:00 (Brussels time). For more information http://ec.europa.eu/research/participants/portal/desktop/en/opportunities/h2020/topics/msca-if-2016.html

5-   Registration to the EU-India STI Cooperation Days 2016 –  Bioeconomy – 21-22 September 2016, CSIR-NIO, Goa

This event is jointly organised by the National Institute of Oceanography (CSIR-NIO), the Department of Biotechnology (DBT), Government of India and the European Commission (EC), the EU-India STI Cooperation days bring together researchers, SMEs and policy makers to discuss the latest policy, research and innovation developments in the field of bioeconomy and offer extended networking opportunities. For more information, please visit us at https://sticoopdays2016.splashthat.com/  and register at https://www.b2match.eu/euindiacoopdays2016

 

We would be glad if you could disseminate this information to researchers and organisations in your constituency / network.  Please feel free to contact us at DELEGATION-INDIA-RI@eeas.europa.eu for any additional information.

 

Wish you all the best!
