Developing talents, advancing research

Science and Policy matchmaking event

31 May 2022

The European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC) and Directorate-General for Education, Youth, Sport and Culture (DG EAC) are organising a pilot science and policy matchmaking event. It is part of the Science-Policy initiative to bring researchers and policymakers closer for stronger evidence-based policymaking.

The event will focus on the opportunities under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) for linking researchers and policymakers - specifically on non-academic placements in MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowships.

The event is for:

  • Researchers planning to apply for Postdoctoral Fellowships under the next call (opening in mid-May and closing in mid-September 2022) and looking for a (policy) placement
  • Policymakers interested to host a researcher for scientific support, advice and knowledge exchange for a 6-month period

This matchmaking event will provide Postdoctoral Fellowships applicants with an opportunity to hear testimonials from fellow researchers and host organisations in MSCA, and to network with potential hosts based on scientific areas and type of policy work.
