    Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA)

    Career funding for mobile researchers

    This programme aims to support researchers at different stages of their career. MSCA are open to all domains of research and innovation, from basic research to market take-up and innovation services.

    There are 5 actions: 

    • Individual Fellowships (IF)
    • Innovation Training Networks (ITN)
    • Research and Innovation Staff Exchange Scheme (RISE)
    • Cofunding of existing or new PhD and postdoc fellowship programmes (COFUND)
    • Researcher’s Night (NIGHT).

    Mobility is a key requirement for the different actions. There are calls for proposals open to individual researchers and innovation staff, as well as to universities, research institutions, businesses (SMEs and large industry) and other socio-economic players from all countries. MSCA are open to men and women alike, without regard to the physical age of the applicant. As mobility is a key element in all MSCA, researchers only receive funding if they move from one country to another. The assigned budget and success rates vary from call to call.

    The exact rules and eligibility criteria for each call are outlined in the respective documents to be found on the Research Participant Portal of the European Commission. For a brief introduction on the different actions refer to our Infosheets under 'Important Information all Actions' on the right.
