They have several recorded webinars that provide support for this Postdoctoral Fellowships Callcall, including an overview (including eligibility rules), practical matters, and the and the process for submission and evaluation. These can be accessed via the UKRO Marie Skłodowska-Curie events page.The Net4Mobility group currently have last year’s handbook with tips to write Part B available on their pages: https://www.net4mobilityplus.eu/scientific-community/ (note that there may be changes for this year’s scheme) (you will need to register with UKRO to access these links).

Applicants can find additional support through the MSCA-NET website, which is integrating relevant information for the 2022 MSCA calls. This replaces the Net4Mobility project used in previous years. The MSCA-NET website includes an FAQ section for each MSCA call, as well as links to the MSCA matchmaking platform.
If you are preparing a Worktribe costing for a candidate, please get in touch with your contact RGO, who will be able be able to support you. A link to the costings template was shared via YRAF on 2nd August 2021 in the email "Horizon Europe Marie Curie Costings - updated guidance for WorkTribe".
Including the supervisor's time
As per the Transparent Approach to Costing (TRAC), an estimate of the cost of the supervisor's time on the project should be included in the Worktribe costing (even though this cannot be recovered from the funder). There is no set recommended FTE, but the estimate of time spent on the project should be as accurate a reflection as possible.
If you have any queries, please get in touch with your RGO contact.
