The European Commission has announced the successful applicants to Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) Innovative Training Networks program.
With a total budget of €530 million, the European Commission has announced that it will support 147 Innovative Training Networks (ITNs) under the program.
These networks cover nearly 1,400 organizations – including 158 Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) – as part of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions. The projects will offer extraordinary, global research and training opportunities to 2,000 PhD candidates. They will also contribute to increasing the overall quality and innovation of doctoral training in Europe and beyond.
The doctoral training programs include 114 European Training Networks, 21 European Industrial Doctorates, and 12 European Joint Doctorates. The selected projects cover a variety of research areas, including engineering (31%), life sciences (24%), and social sciences (10%).
Early-stage researchers will be recruited and trained to convert knowledge and ideas into products and services for economic and social benefit. The projects will provide researchers with enhanced career prospects both in the academic and non-academic sectors, through international, interdisciplinary, and intersectoral mobility combined with an innovation-oriented mind-set.
