Marie Curie Research Training Networks
The Marie Curie Research Training Networks provide training and research experience for researchers of any age or nationality by giving them the opportunity to spend between three months to three years in another country as part of an international high-quality research project. The networks contribute to the transfer of knowledge through the promotion of multidisciplinary research. The schemes also support the interaction and exchange of all research staff working on the project.

The size of the network varies according to the nature of the research activity, but will involve at least three partners from three different countries.

Marie Curie Research Training Networks Universities, research centres, enterprises and international organisations in an EU or Associated State or any other country of the world making up the proposed network apply together to the European Commission for funding. The Commission then selects the successful proposals and signs a contract with the research institutions involved.

The network is then free to select the fellows directly. The training is open to early-stage researchers of any nationality in the first four years of their research career and more experienced researchers with up to ten years of research experience. Successful researchers will be required to move to the country where their host institution is based.

  • The last call for proposals was published on 17 June 2005. It is an open call with closure date on 28 September 2005 at 17.00 (Brussels local time). - CLOSED -
  • A detailed explanation of Marie Curie Research Training Networks is provided in the following Handbook (PDF document - 594 Kb)
  • Individual researchers are invited to visit the “Marie Curie Funding Opportunities Search Tool” on CORDIS website for information and fellowship vacancies in the projects funded by this scheme.
  • Additional information on the progress of calls and the status of proposal evaluation, as well as guidance on how to apply and manage your project can be found at the new Marie Curie information service on CORDIS
