MSCA: Types of Innovative Training Networks

Monday, 16 December, 2013

The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Networks are interdisciplinary and intersectoral networks of universities, research institutes and companies based in different countries.

This video features two different types of Marie Curie Initial Training Networks: the Innovative Doctoral Programme (IDP) with the Manifold project (Utrecht) focused on protein folding, and the European Industrial Doctorates (EID) with the Vader project (Sienna and Birmingham) on vaccine design and immune responses.

The clip shows the experiences of the following Marie Skłodowska-Curie early stage researchers: Anna Chatsisvili and Martina Rádli for Manifold project; and Anna Elisabeth Schager and Arianna Marini for the Vader project.

Their respective supervisors, Dr. Stefan Rüdiger (Manifold project, University of Utrecht) and PhD. Calman A. MacLennan (Vader project) explain their projects and the added value of these types of MSCA.
