Marie Skłodowska-
Curie actions

Main principles

The Marie Sklodowska-Curie actions (MSCA) provide grants for all stages of researchers' careers and encourage transnational and interdisciplinary mobility. The MSCA aim to equip researchers with the necessary skills and international experience for a successful career, either in the public or the private sector.  Research and innovation fields are chosen freely by the applicants (individuals and/or organisations) in a fully 'bottom-up' manner.

type of grant available

Doctoral Networks support competitively selected joint research training and/or doctoral programmes, implemented by European partnerships of universities, research institutions, and non-academic organisations.

Postdoctoral Fellowships support the mobility of researchers within and beyond Europe - as well as help attract the best foreign researchers to work in the EU.


Staff Exchanges funds short-term exchanges of personnel between academic, industrial and commercial organisations throughout the world.


Co-funding of regional, national and international programmes (COFUND) provides financial support to organisations for their own researcher training and career development programmes.

MSCA and Citizens European, through the European Researchers’ Night, aims to bring research and researchers closer to the public at large, to increase awareness of research and innovation activities and to boost public recognition of science and research education.
