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