MSCA bridging business and research video

Friday, 28 March, 2014

Want to learn more on the funding opportunities under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions (MSCA) for companies including SMEs? Why don't you listen to the testimonials of companies that have benefited from the scheme!

"For me there are two main benefits for participating […] we have 100% funded researcher work and we have the chance to hire people and make them part of our team" Anton Fuchs, Dept Manager at Virtual Vehicle,

With the MSCA, companies, and in particular SMEs, can recruit PhD candidates or experienced researchers (post-doc) during their entire fellowship and participate in staff exchange programmes in order to benefit from knowledge transfer and enhance their competitiveness. 

Well-trained, entrepreneurially-minded researchers who can move between academic and private sector are essential to this successful collaboration. This is why the MSCA are promoting Business-Academic collaborations that focus on giving researchers adequate skills and opportunities to contribute to SME and other business growth.
