Doctoral programmes address the development and broadening of the research competencies of early-stage researchers. The training follows the EU Principles on Innovative Doctoral Training (http://ec.europa.eu/euraxess/pdf/research_policies/Principles_for_Innovative_Doctoral_Training.pdf). Collaboration with a wider set of partners, including from the non-academic sector, which may provide hosting or secondment opportunities or training in research or transferable skills, as well as innovative elements of the proposed programme, will be positively taken into account during the evaluations. Each researcher must be enrolled in a doctoral programme. Attention is paid to the quality of supervision and mentoring arrangements as well as career guidance.
Limitations regarding the researchers' origin and destination should be avoided. Researchers supported under this scheme should comply with the mobility rules of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions (i.e. compulsory trans-national mobility). Existing programmes can deviate from this rule if duly justified in the proposal by the applicant.
