The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions

The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Awarding €6.16 billion in the next period to 2020, the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) support research training and career development focused on innovation skills. The programme funds worldwide and cross-sector mobility that implements excellent research in any field (a "bottom-up" approach). There are MSCA grants for all stages of a researcher's career, from PhD candidates to highly experienced researchers, which encourage transnational, intersectoral and interdisciplinary mobility. The MSCA will become the main EU programme for doctoral training, financing 25,000 PhDs.

Endowing researchers with new skills and a wider range of competences, while offering them attractive working conditions, is a crucial aspect of the MSCA. In addition to fostering mobility between countries, the MSCA also seek to break the real and perceived barriers between academic and other sectors, especially business. Several MSCA initiatives promote the involvement of industry etc. in doctoral and post-doctoral research.

There are four main types of MSCA:

  • Research networks (ITN) support for Innovative Training Networks that develop new researchers
  • Individual fellowships (IF) support for experienced researchers undertaking mobility between countries, with the option to work outside academia (link to the page on individual fellowships)
  • Research and Innovation Staff Exchanges (RISE) for international and inter-sectoral cooperation
  • Co-funding of regional, national and international programmes that finance research training or fellowships involving mobility to or from another country
