Researchers at Risk
The Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions (MSCA) enable displaced researchers moving to Europe to continue their careers through the provision of funding and support.
As a MSCA programme, ALECS will support applications from researchers who are at risk or who are displaced by conflict, or whose situation makes it difficult for them to pursue their research careers. Support will be provided on a case by case basis, both during the application process and during the fellowship programme.
Available support may include:
- Application submission by post where online application requirements may discriminate against the researcher’s circumstances.
- Application of the eligibility criteria appropriately to ensure researchers who have suspended their activities whilst seeking refugee status are not disadvantaged.
For applicants who applied for or who are applying for refugee status in Ireland, the time spent in that process will not count as time resident in Ireland.

Researchers at risk are encouraged to discuss the support available with the ALECS management team.
