This event is open to group leaders and senior researchers based in the Canton of Bern. The aim of this event is to provide information about funding opportunities for PhD training programmes within the Horizon 2020 scheme of Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Networks (ITN). The event is primarily targeted at those who are interested in coordinating such a PhD training programme for the ITN-2019 call (submission deadline on 15 January 2019), with network partners from various organisations within and beyond Europe.
ITNs are collaborative networks open to all domains of research and innovation. They bring together universities, research institutes, businesses and SMEs to train researchers at doctorate level. The research network can take the form of a European Training Network (ETN), European Industrial Doctorate (EID) or European Joint Doctorate (EJD).
The Swiss National Contact Point for Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions, Dr. Isabelle Spühler, will update you on the requirements for submitting an ETN, EID, or EJD proposal. In addition, a successful ITN coordinator will share valuable experiences and insights.
