EPICradle Info Session (online) April 07, 2022
07/04/2022 @ 15:00 – 16:00 CEST
Info Session online on zoom
Did you attend one of our EPICamps and are now wondering what the next step on the “EPICUR Pathway to Research” – the EPICradle looks like? Are you an Early Career Researcher considering applying for an EPICradle fellowship in the current Application phase until April 15, 2022? If yes, come join us for this info session!
This informational session aims to explain the concept and application procedure of the EPICradle to interested Early Career Researchers (ECRs), including PhD students, junior professors, Postdocs, junior group leaders through assistant professors, who are planning to apply for an EPICradle. ECRs will have the opportunity to create research projects with the benefits of both funding and institutional support provided through EPICUR.
Hard facts: EPICradles will take place over the course of three months between May and September 2022 and two groups of up to 5 researchers are chosen to work (both physically and virtually) on topics relating to the EPIChallenges (Sustainability, Mobility/Migration/Identity, and the transition of Public Health). There is no limit on the scientific profiles – researchers from all areas and disciplines are encouraged to participate. Participation in an EPICradle is open to Early Career Researchers of various stages, BUT our funding (3.000€ individual stipend + 5.000€ group budget) is limited to Early Career Researchers who are within a 6 year range of their PhDs, unless they can argue particular hardship (parenthood, care responsibilities, other personal reason). As such, EPICradles are an opportunity to prepare a joint research proposal for the last step of the “EPICUR Pathway to Research”, the EPIClusters, offering up to 150.000 € to chosen research groups of ECRs.
Applications for EPICradle are currently open until April 15th, 2022 and must be submitted through the official application portal.
