The UK Research Office (UKRO), in its capacity as UK National Contact Point for the Horizon Europe Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA), is holding two information webinars for organisations and individuals interested in applying to the 2024 MSCA Doctoral Networks Call (call deadline 27 November 2024).

The MSCA Doctoral Networks Call

The Doctoral Networks scheme provides funding to a consortium of universities, research institutions, research infrastructures, businesses including SMEs, and other socio-economic actors to develop a doctoral programme in a research and innovation area. The consortium is free to identify the area in which the research and training programme is needed and can include partners from all over the world.

Doctoral Networks sets out to develop entrepreneurial, innovative doctoral candidates, by equipping the researchers with the right combination of research-related and transferable competencies. The Doctoral Network ultimately aims to enhance the recruited researchers’ long-term career perspectives, both within and outside academia.

Aim of the event

The webinars will provide attendees with a comprehensive overview of the 2024 MSCA Doctoral Networks Call. They will cover all the information needed to submit a successful application to this call, including the MSCA eligibility criteria, available budget, and submission and evaluation rules, as well as practical guidance on writing a proposal.

We recommend participants sign up to both sessions.

The call will close on 27 November 2024. 

Who should attend?

The webinars are aimed at researchers and other staff in UK academic and non-academic organisations, including industries and SMEs, who are interested in the 2024 MSCA Doctoral Networks Call.

Programme outline

Session 2 will focus on how to write a successful MSCA DN proposal. It will cover the evaluation and submission process, and top-tips for applying. Participants will have the opportunity to ask any questions in a dedicated Q&A session.
