Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellowships are European research grants available to researchers regardless of their nationality or field of research. In addition to generous research funding scientists have the possibility to gain experience abroad and in the private sector, and to complete their training with competences or disciplines useful for their careers.
The Marie Sklodowska-Curie programme aims to foster innovation, research-business cooperation and also includes a strong international component based on the principle of mobility.
The MSCA provides funding for all stages of research careers, being doctoral candidates or highly experienced researchers and by ensuring good working conditions and work/life balance for the researchers.
The programme is open to all fields of research and innovation, from fundamental research to market take-up and innovation services. Furthermore, it also encourages mobility between the different sectors (universities, research centres, and companies), disciplines and countries.
