1800 PhD candidates to receive funding for doctoral training abroad

The European Commission will support 128 Innovative Training Networks, involving 1 389 organisations in 56 countries, under its Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) Programme.
With a budget of 470 million, MSCA will fund the networks’  top-notch research and training programmes and will open the opportunity for over 1 800 PhD candidates to complete their doctoral training abroad. This will also contribute to increasing the overall quality and innovation of doctoral training in Europe and beyond.

The 128 doctoral training programmes selected include 16 European Industrial Doctorates, in which non-academic organisations have an equal role to universities, and 9 European Joint Doctorates delivered by several universities. The selected projects cover a variety of research areas such as engineering and communication, environment, health and palaeontology.

The deadlines for this call are the 11th of September 2019 for individual fellowships and on the 26th of September 2019 for co-funding of regional, national and international programmes.
