Horizon Europe MSCA contact points meet in the Faroe Islands

On the 7th and 8th of May the Research Council Faroe Islands hosted the gathering of National Contact Points from eleven different countries across Europe and Africa. The event had dedicated focus on proposal writing for Doctoral Networks in Horizon Europe and was supported by the European Union through the MSCA-Net project.  

With a full agenda the participants exchanged views and shared experience on how to advise clients when proposing a Doctoral Network. The exercise included a presentation from each participant and follow-up discussion.

The University of the Faroe Islands and the Faroese partner in the EU funded Rasopta project participated. The Rasopta project was used as inspiration for the exercise of proposal writing. The PhD fellow working at the Faroese Food and Veterinary Authority together with a Norwegian PhD fellow and supervisors contributed to the meeting with valuable insight to the implementation of a Doctoral Network.
