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

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

Individual fellowships (IF) support the mobility of researchers within and beyond Europe - as well as help attract the best foreign researchers to work in the EU.

Research and Innovation Staff Exchange (RISE) 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.

European Researchers’ Night (NIGHT) is a Europe-wide public event dedicated to popular science and fun learning, taking place in September each year (more than 30 countries and 300 cities are involved).
