The evaluation scores and funding decisions from the first Horizon 2020 call for proposals under the highly competitive Marie Sklodowska-Curie actions have been published and the overall result was a resounding success for Innovayt and several of our clients. The programme supports research training and exchange projects. 7 projects – or more than half of our client’s applications – received positive funding decisions. 6 of these projects were funded by the ITN programme, where the overall success rate for the programmes is below 7%.
The 7 supported Marie Curie projects will secure funding of 18,5 million EUR, out of which more than 4.3 million EUR is earmarked for new PhD candidates in Denmark. The group of successful project initiators and coordinators include two research centers in the Copenhagen region, a London-based university, a Dutch University and two Danish companies.
Stay tuned to our home page over the coming weeks, where we will post news on several of the individual projects and share the promoters’ experiences with the application processes.
