Re: Your Opinion Please. Appreciated

I guess your situation is unique. On the one hand, the MSCA is very prestigious and great on your CV, in addition to the network you’ll make. But, on the other hand, getting EU citizenship if you don’t plan on leaving will be invaluable. While it might take longer to get in Norway, would you be elig...

Hi Everyone,

I just got a notification from the Comission that my project pre-financing payment has been processed. They just paid about two thirds of the requested amount. Is this normal?

Thanks,

Rob
Hi, congratulations! When is your starting date?

Re: 2020 Marie Curie Individual Fellowship (H2020-MSCA-IF-2020)

Are you talking about the role of the supervisor in writing the application or the supervisors role in implementing the project? Hi everyone! I'm new to the forum, I'm in Humanities and new to the MSCA-IF, so you can imagine how I feel! I've been reading guidelines, FAQs, blogs, and whatever source ...

Re: MSCA-IF awardees in 2019 and academics networking

Has anyone’s grant paid out yet? If so, how is it paid to the host? In a lump sum or in monthly installments?

Re: MSCA-IF awardees in 2019 and academics networking

I hope you find your answer. My host has been trying to find out the situation for taxation of these extra allowances in Ireland to absolutely no avail. Nobody could give us a straight answer. We are proceeding as if everything is taxed as regular salary just to be cautious. Hi everyone! Is there an...

Re: Transfer to New Host University

I wouldn’t have thought this was possible. The host plays a not insignificant role in your application score so moving institute means having a different unevaluated host. Also, the MSCA specifically requires moving to a different country if you’ve lived in your current country of residence for 12 m...

Re: MSCA-IF awardees in 2019 and academics networking

My bar is blue too, with just the “paid” circle left empty. It’s been like that for 42 days though and the progress bar says 42/52. Anyone else know when the EC pays out? Hey guys, just to be 100% sure, my bar is gone full blue and just "paid" is missing, it says it will be payed before my starting ...

Re: MSCA grant management

I reckon you should contact your national contact point or the EC contact point for this kind of info? When is your start date? Hi all, I have a question regarding how the grant is managed. Specifically are the expenses need to be justified to the EC or to your host institute's purchasing norms? Is ...

Re: MSCA-IF awardees in 2019 and academics networking

I don’t know if this is true. For example if you were to start your project with a host institute based in the EU but were currently located in the US, the US would absolutely tax your income. If you live in California, you pay state tax in California regardless of where that money comes from for ex...
