Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions

The Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions (MSCA) support research training and career development focused on innovation skills. The programme funds worldwide and cross-sector mobility that implements excellent research in any field (a "bottom-up" approach).

Through various streams, MSCAs support researcher mobility at different stages of their career:

  • International Training Network (ITN) for PhD studies (for Japanese candidates mostly through application via the EURAXESS Jobs database -“more filters” tab, ”Marie Curie” link),
  • Individual Fellowships (IF) for postdoctoral fellowships or research stays (without age limit),
  • Research and Innovation Staff Exchange (RISE) for repeated short research stays over a several years span.

Open and upcoming MSCA calls:

RISE (Opens 1 December 2016)

ITN (Deadline 10 January 2017)
