The Marie-Curie ITN programme (and its subprogrammes ETN and EID) aim to support the career development and training of researchers – with a focus on innovation skills – in all scientific disciplines, through international and intersectoral mobility. The main focus of these programmes is to provide cutting-edge doctoral training to enhance career perspectives of young researchers in both the academic and non-academic sectors. These programmes are highly competitive with success rates around 5 and 10% for the ETN and the EID respectively.
In 2017, 6 applications that had Innovayt support were successful - 4 ETNs and 2 EIDs - totalling 18.5 million EUR in funding. The funded applications cover several areas, namely ICT, life sciences, biotech, mechanical engineering and photonics. For Denmark in particular, 19 PhDs students will be funded, representing 5.5 million EUR in funding. For more information, please contact Reinaldo Ramos.
