The applications to Falling Walls Lab Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions 2022 are now open with a deadline on 21 March 2022 (12h CET, Brussels time).
Falling Walls Lab is a world-wide pitch competition and networking forum. It provides a stage for break-through ideas from the worlds of science, business, arts and society. Academic and research organisations around the world organise their own competitions at local and regional level under the supervision of Falling Walls Lab. The winners of each local event meet to compete in the annual Falling Walls Lab Finale in November.
Our own competition Falling Walls Lab MSCA will take place on 24 May as part of the MSCA conference organised in the framework of the French Presidency of the Council of the EU in cooperation with Université PSL – Paris Science & Lettres.
Falling Walls Lab MSCA showcases the quality and diversity of the most innovative minds taking part in MSCA projects. Through a three minute pitch, participants get the opportunity to present their research work to peers, a high-calibre jury made up of experts from academia and business, and to the general public. They also answer questions from the jury and the audience in a live session. The winner will attend the Falling Walls Grand Finale and Science Summit in Berlin between 7-9 November.
This year, we are looking for 15 excellent communicators from all disciplines, with exciting research topics, new ideas and discoveries. Fellows from all Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions are encouraged to apply. Applicants must be MSCA fellows taking part in an MSCA project by the deadline (including early-stage and experienced researchers and staff working in research and innovation from all actions). Participants will take part in coaching sessions to practise their communication and storytelling skills in advance of the competition.
