The Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) provide grants for all stages of researchers’ careers and encourage transnational, intersectoral and interdisciplinary mobility.  The grants enable research-focused European organisations (universities, research centers, and companies) to host talented foreign researchers and to create strategic partnerships with leading institutions worldwide.  MSCA also offers opportunities for EU researchers to go abroad (eg to the USA).  Under the EU research programme “Horizon 2020”, the MSCA has a budget of over €6 billion for the period 2014-2020.

The opportunities the Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions offer to researchers will be introduced.  This session will guide the audience through the ways of participating including (i) by applying for an individual fellowship, or (ii) by applying directly to a vacancy in a project.
