The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) are a European Commission Funding programme which supports researchers across all research disciplines and in all employment sectors.
MSCA fund excellent and innovative research training as well as attractive career development and knowledge-exchange opportunities through cross-border and cross-sector mobility of researchers, to better prepare them for current and future societal challenges. This funding aims to reinforce cooperation between academia and all types of non-academic organisations (companies, CSOs, hospitals, public bodies etc.) in terms of research training, career development and knowledge transfer.
All funding in MSCAs is bottom-up; there are no thematic calls or priority areas that are supported. Depending on the Action, the budgets available range from €50,000 to €10 million.
