Collegio Carlo Alberto has opened a new funding call for MSCA Seal of Excellence holders who applied to Postdoctoral European Fellowships under Horizon Europe.

Eligible projects should be in the areas of “Economic Sciences (ECO)” or “Social Sciences and Humanities (SOC), even if the original application did not indicate Collegio Carlo Alberto as the project host institution.

Information for applicants

The full details and eligibility conditions in English are published on a dedicated website.

The deadline to submit proposals is 31 March 2024.

Successful applicants will carry out their research project for the same duration as foreseen in the original MSCA application and will receive a salary equivalent to the amount of MSCA fellowships provided by the European Commission.

Where necessary – for example if the host institution in the original application was based in a different country – the total award amount will be recalculated using the coefficient for Italy. The activation of the “family allowance” item will be evaluated at the time the grant is awarded, based on the fellow's needs.

This call is part of the institution’s and Compagnia di San Paolo’s strategy for strengthening the competitiveness of Piedmont and Liguria in research and innovation through initiatives that promote the mobility of international researchers to these regions.

About the MSCA Seal of Excellence

The MSCA Seal of Excellence is a quality label awarded to applicants of Postdoctoral Fellowships and COFUND who achieved a high score in their applications (85% or more) but unfortunately were not awarded funding due to budgetary constraints.

The MSCA Seal of Excellence

  • underlines the value of these projects, which may use it to help find alternative funding
  • allows other funding bodies such as national, regional, and university-level schemes to support MSCA proposals holding the label and take advantage of the Horizon Europe evaluation process
