On 22 June, the European Commission announced new calls to support researchers’ training, skills and career development under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA), the EU’s flagship funding programme under Horizon Europe for doctoral education and postdoctoral training. The calls follow the adoption of the Horizon Europe 2021-2022 work programme and are open to researchers from the Eastern partner countries.
With a total budget of €6.6 billion over 2021-2027, Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions support researchers from all over the world, at all stages of their careers and in all disciplines. They also benefit institutions by supporting excellent doctoral, postdoctoral programmes and collaborative research, and innovation projects, boosting their global attractiveness and visibility and fostering cooperation beyond academia, including with big companies and SMEs.
In 2021, the MSCA will provide around €822 million covering the following five main actions of the work programme:
Under Horizon Europe 2021-2027, MSCA will place stronger emphasis on inter-sectoral collaboration, notably between academia and business, and promote sustainable behaviours, research activities and management in line with the European Green Deal.
