Hear inspiring stories from researchers who have advanced on their career path thanks to the EU Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA), in existence now for 20 years. You might be the next!
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.
On 11 May 2017, the Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions will organise the fourth Awards Ceremony of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Prizes, which will take place at the Maltese EU Presidency conference Mobility Takes Research Further in Malta.
On 8 November, MSCA kicked off its 20th Anniversary with the presence of Commissioner Tibor Navracsics and Vice-President of the European Parliament Mairead McGuinness.
