I submitted a Marie Curie postdoc fellowship at the beginning of September and as of now (Jan) I have not heard back —I have checked the ECAS portal. The website does not give a single Gantt chart or time frame ironically. So I would like to know how long have people waited?

I am also wonder if a long wait is a possible hint of rejection, like with jobs. Has anyone got a feeling that this is case? I know there is a accepted, reserve, rejected list, which would suggest that this isn't the case.


The Guide for applicants says that information on the outcome of the evaluation will be available in February 2016. For reference: I applied in the previous round (the timeline was the same give or take a few days) and received a notice that the proposal was approved in the beginning of February. There was no communication before that, so I wouldn't read anything into that.
