What is a Marie-Skłodowska-Curie – Innovative Training Network – European Training Network?
Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) are part of the European Union’s largest research and innovation programme: Horizon2020. Innovative Training Networks (ITNs) are one of three programmes funded through MSCAs. ITN-ETNs support competitively selected joint research training and/or doctoral programmes implemented by European partnerships of universities, research institutions and non-academic organisations, for the structured training of young researchers. The aim is to boost their scientific and general competences within an international, interdisciplinary and intersectoral research and education programme within this network, to enhance researcher career prospects through developing their skills in entrepreneurship, creativity and innovation. Particularly important is the participation of institutions from both the academic and non-academic sectors host foreign researchers and to create strategic partnerships with leading institutions world-wide.
