Innovative Training Networks (ITN)
Innovative doctoral-level training providing a range of skills in order to maximise employability

The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions aim to support the career development and training of researchers – with a focus on innovation skills – in all scientific disciplines through international and intersector mobility.

The Innovative Training Networks (ITN) aim to train a new generation of creative, entrepreneurial and innovative early-stage researchers, able to face current and future challenges and to convert knowledge and ideas into products and services for economic and social benefit.

Deadline: 9 April at 5PM, Brussels local time

Marie Skłodowska-Curie
Individual Fellowships (IF)

Individual Fellowships provide opportunities to acquire and transfer new knowledge and to work on research in a European context (EU Member States and Associated Countries) or outside Europe. The scheme particularly supports the return and reintegration of researchers from outside Europe who have previously worked here. It also develops or helps to restart the careers of individual researchers that show great potential, considering their experience.

Support is foreseen for individual, trans-national fellowships awarded to the best or most promising researchers for employment in EU Member States or Associated Countries, based on an application made jointly by the researcher and host organisation in the academic or non-academic sectors.

Deadline: 11 September at 5PM, Brussels local time
