Johns Hopkins University is an American research and teaching institution, however, SAIS Europe is also certified by the European Union (EU) as "a private entity, non-profit and research as well as Higher or Secondary Education Establishment". As such Johns Hopkins SAIS Europe is eligible for partnership in collaborative research projects funded by the EU and able to host external scholars through the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA).
Individual Fellowships in MSCA support the mobility of researchers within and beyond Europe. The grant usually covers two years' salary, a mobility allowance, research costs and overheads for the host institution. MSCA come under the "Excellent Science" pillar of Horizon 2020 and will award 6,162 million euro over the period 2014-2020. Consult here the calendar of upcoming calls for proposals.
Individual researchers submit proposals for funding in liaison with SAIS Europe. MSCA proposals are judged by the European Commission on their research quality, the researcher's future career prospects, and the support offered by the host organization. It is therefore imperative that scholars interested in working with SAIS Europe identify the faculty member whose research area most closely matches the proposed project.
