The Horizon 2020 Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions funding scheme provides Academic institutions and companies with support for all aspects of a researcher’s career in periods of training and mobility. Under the Innovative Training Networks (ITN) and its sub-programmes, financial support is given to research education and networking opportunities through staff-exchange and knowledge-sharing between companies and institutions. In particular, the programmes provide non-academic experience and raises employability for participating researchers.
For the most recent Marie Curie deadline in January 2020, Innovayt was engaged in 34 project proposals from 8 different countries. 28 of these were submitted for the ETN sub-programme, a highly competitive networking programme with participants from Academia as well as Non-Academia, inside and outside of Europe. The projects were submitted by universities and institutions of higher education from Denmark, Norway, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands and Germany, amongst others. At Innovayt, we are happy to contribute to another productive Marie Curie round, both for new and recurring clients, and hope to sustain our successful record for these EU instruments come the evaluation in the Spring of 2020.
