This question is very much linked to this question of mine, that got no reply. However, the subject of this present question is very different.

I've already tried to look for contact information for Marie Curie postdocs, and there doesn't seem be a clearly written email address that'd answer such questions. If you go to the link, it'll ask you to go to the site of European Research Executive Agency, which gives you a bunch of irrelevant information, nothing to do with contact emails. It's confusing that they put up so much info to skip through in order to just get a hold of the contact info.

Next, I googled "marie curie postdoc 2023 contact email", and from these search results, I see that

So I emailed them at this address, but no reply yet! Hence I'm asking here.

It's my understanding that eligibility questions do not go to a central Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions office, but rather the National Contact Points - see the second paragraph on the first page you link to:

If you need help to prepare your application or have questions about the specific requirements of the job offers funded under the MSCA, follow the link to reach out to the MSCA National Contact Points in your country.

If you click that link you'll get a list of all the National Contact Points, you can filter it for particular countries and schemes, which should give you a few contact e-mails to try.

The e-mail address you say you mailed is not an EU address associated with the MSCA itself, but rather a particular institute's call for applications for MSCA roles to be hosted by them, so they probably are not a relevant person to contact.

  • Thank you Stephen, I accepted your answer - it's quite helpful! You're right in saying that the eligibility questions do not go to a central Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions office, and I do wonder if any question goes though it at all? I've yet another question, that I'm wondering about - can we submit more than one proposals to MSCA postdoc fellowships? Thanks again! May 29, 2023 at 17:50

    @ScienceMan What Stephen McMahon is writing is that the National Contact Points are to be contacted for any question. We don't know why the eui.eu e-mail address is given at all on any website, but do know that the EU has a scheme where they offload the work to answer questions to national contact points completely. These contact points receive training so that they know the funding programs very well.

    @ScienceMan I don't think there's any general MSCA contact e-mail address at all for such queries. Regarding the fellowship question - if you mean the scheme where the postdoc applies for their fellowship (previously 'Individual Fellowships'), then no, it's 1/round I believe. But MSCA does also fund postdocs through some other schemes (e.g. CoFund), which some people call 'MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowships' in job ads. These are normal postdocs, which you can apply to multiple of, although are less individually prestigious. Jun 1, 2023 at 10:22
