The Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions, named after the double Nobel Prize winning Polish-French scientist famed for her work on radioactivity, support researchers at all stages of their careers, irrespective of nationality. Researchers working across all disciplines, from life-saving healthcare to 'blue-sky' science, are eligible for funding. The MSCA also support industrial doctorates, combining academic research study with work in companies, and other innovative training that enhances employability and career development.
In addition to generous research funding, scientists have the possibility to gain experience abroad and in the private sector, and to complete their training with competences or disciplines useful for their careers. More information about various funding schemes and requirements for applying is available below.
The latest edition of the Science is wonder-ful! – European Researchers' Night event was a hugely successful day. Almost 3,200 people, including over 50 exhibitors from 15 different countries, gathered for the event run by the European Commission and the Parlamentarium (European Parliament).
More researchers than ever before are applying for EU funding to start their career in Europe.
