About Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions
The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA), along with the European Research Council (ERC) and Research Infrastructures, is part of Horizon Europe’s Pillar I ‘Excellence Science’, which aims to promote scientific excellence and attract highly-skilled researchers and innovators to Europe.
The MSCA funding opportunities support researcher training, career development, and knowledge exchange, helping researchers to establish a stable career path within Europe.
What will be funded by the MSCA?
All MSCA opportunities are ‘bottom-up’ and open to all research and innovation areas that prompt international, inter-sectoral and interdisciplinary mobility of researchers. MSCA also set out to enhance training and career development systems thereby having a structuring impact on institutions.
Applications can be submitted by researchers and innovation staff from universities, research institutions, research infrastructures, businesses and other socio-economic actors from EU Member States, the Horizon Europe Associated Countries – this includes the UK - and other third countries.
