Marie Skłodowska Curie (part of the Horizon 2020 programme for research)
The objective of the Marie Skłodowska Curie action (MSCA) is to support the career development and training of researchers – with a focus on innovation skills – in all scientific disciplines through worldwide and cross-sector mobility. For this, the programme provides grants at all stages of researchers' careers, from PhD candidates to highly experienced researchers, and encourage transnational, intersectoral and interdisciplinary mobility. The MSCA will become the main EU programme for doctoral training, funding 25 000 PhDs over seven years.
