  • Experience other research environments

The University of Southern Denmark (SDU) Research Support team will assist you at every step of your Marie Skłodowska-Curie European Fellowship application.

First of all, you need to establish contact with an SDU host environment. After that, please contact SDU Research Support. We will, in close cooperation with the scientific host and contracted EU consultants, help you in writing a pitch-perfect application that benefits from expert counseling and co-development of both scientific and non-scientific parts.

When a grant is awarded, our International Staff Office will help you in all aspects of taking up residence and working in Denmark, including with practical, social, cultural and legal matters.
