As an early scholar, it can be difficult to know how to take your research to the next level.  More than ever, obtaining independent funding that allows you to invest in your own scientific training while building international networks is essential.

The MSCA, and through it the PROCESS Programme, aims to provide researchers with the necessary skills and international experience for a successful career, either in the public or the private sector. The MSCA programme responds to the challenges sometimes faced by researchers, offering them attractive working conditions and the opportunity to move between academic and other settings. 

But what sets COFUND programmes apart from other postdoctoral schemes?  How will PROCESS assist you in achieving your research goals? The answer lies in a network of support for each fellow.  Rather than embarking on a fellowship as a single reseracher, as COFUND MSCA fellows, PROCESS fellows will benefit from being part of a cohort of researchers entering the UL research community at the same time.  While each researcher will deliver an individual project, PROCESS will provide regular opportunities to network, collaborate and learn alongside peers with similar and synergistic ideas.  PROCESS has also incorporated an industrially-relevant placement within each fellowship, which includes a mandatory secondment to industry where a non-academic supervisor will offer mentorship and training tailored to specific researcher goals.

26 fellowships. Endless possibiliites.  PROCESS starts with you.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 801165.
