Badia, MW Common Room

The 10th MWP-ACO Conference will gather together representatives of European and national funding agencies, professors and young academics to discuss on research schemes and grants available to international researchers in the Social Sciences and Humanities. The speakers will provide the audience with information about opportunities which are directly aimed at early-career scholars and will offer advice and insights on the application procedures as well as practical tips to apply for funding. The event will also enable the ACO team to offer the most up to date information on these schemes to post docs globally.

The meeting will include representatives from the Research Executive Agency; representatives from the national research agencies of France, Switzerland and Germany; EUI professors and young academics. 

The conference will end with individual consultations with the speakers.
