[1] On the first meeting (29/01), participants will be provided with templates of the MSCA and ERC calls and will be asked to frame the fundamental structure of the proposal, paying particular attention to the evaluation criteria and to the fundamental aims of the call. The idea is that participants will choose a call between MSCA and ERC according to their interest and will elaborate a short draft of proposal (e.g., bullet points) in which they will try to tailor their research idea to the requirements and criteria of the chosen call. On 19/02 participants will be invited to present the structure of their draft proposal and all will be invited to join the discussion on the strengths and weaknesses of such proposals. Individual feedback on the draft proposals will be provided to those who send their proposals.
