Part of Horizon Europe, the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) are the European Union’s flagship funding programme for doctoral education and postdoctoral training of researchers.
The European Research Executive Agency (REA) manages the MSCA on behalf of the European Commission.
Areas of intervention:
- supporting researchers in their training, skills and career development;
- fostering trans-national, cross-sectoral and interdisciplinary mobility;
- funding excellent doctoral and postdoctoral programmes, collaborative projects;
- promoting public outreach.
They achieve a structuring impact on higher education institutions, research centres and other organisations way beyond academia by widely spreading excellence and setting standards for high-quality researcher education and training.
By doing so, they enhance the visibility and attractiveness of these organisations, not only across the European Research Area (ERA), but also worldwide.
Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions will also contribute to the orientations identified in the Horizon Europe strategic plan.
