The Innovative Training Networks (ITN) action is a highly competitive programme under the Horizon 2020 Marie-Curie funding scheme for joint research training. The programme aims to encourage the training and development of young researchers with a focus on international mobility and innovation skills. The programme applies to researchers in all scientific fields, both academic and non-academic. The main focus is to establish a new generation of pioneering researchers, by providing excellent doctoral training which will help augment their career prospects.
For the most recent call in January 2019, Innovayt assisted with the development and presentation of 30 projects from nine different countries. The project proposals were submitted by Universities and higher education institutions from Denmark, Norway, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands and Germany among others – and hold plans to build doctoral networks across a diversity of scientific domains, ranging from marine biology, ICT, mechanical engineering to nanotechnology in medicine. The projects with Danish coordinators recruited researchers from six universities, including DTU, Aarhus University and University of Copenhagen.
