Outline Marie Curie Actions in Brief Marie Curie Actions Achievements Participation of "EU Centres'" Countries Horizon 2020 & MSCA - Overview Education and Culture

3 Marie Curie Actions Basics
Significant EU fellowship programmes since 1990 (FP3) for researchers’ mobility Marie Curie label since 1996 Actions aimed at structuring training, mobility and career development for researchers Under FP7, implemented through the People Programme ( ): EUR 4,75 billion Pierre and Marie Curie honeymoon, 1895 Education and Culture

4 Key features Bottom-up approach
Mobility, both transnational & intersectoral Main EU programme providing structured doctoral training, including industrial doctorates Opening research careers at European & international level Enhanced business-academia collaboration & staff exchange Excellent employment and working conditions, in line with the EU Charter and Code for Researchers Education and Culture

5 Europe 2020 Flagship Initiatives
MCA & EU2020 Strategy Europe 2020 Flagship Initiatives Youth On the Move Agenda for New Skills and Jobs Innovation Union 1 million more researchers Attract and train young people to become researchers Improve quality of doctoral training Involve businesses in doctoral training Promote researchers mobility across sectors, countries and disciplines Attractiveness of European universities Stronger links between education, research and innovation Equip researchers with relevant skills that will match both public and private sector needs Improve career prospects of doctoral candidates Education and Culture

12 Budget distribution by scientific panel in FP7
FP7 MCA Achievements researchers financed since the creation of the Marie Curie Actions More than PhD supported in FP7 Marie Curie researchers coming from all over the world (around 130 nationalities) Marie Curie host organisations in more than 80 countries 46% of researchers coming to EU from industrialised countries stay in Europe after the end of their IIF fellowship 38% women participation in FP7 MCA, close to the 40% target Bottom-up approach Budget distribution by scientific panel in FP7 Education and Culture

13 Budget dedicated to societal challenges under FP7 MCA (2007-2011)
FP7 MCA Achievements More than 50% of the budget dedicated to research on societal challenges Bridging the academia-business gap: ~6.000 secondments / recruitments in ~350 FP7 MCA projects SMEs play a major role: in IAPP and ITN they account for more than 50% of all businesses participating Budget dedicated to societal challenges under FP7 MCA ( ) Education and Culture

16 respectability amongst the research community.' (VRWI)
Stakeholder feedback 'The Marie Curie scheme is one of the most efficient programmes, both in terms of support from the scientific community and of outcome in reinforcing the quality and excellence of scientific staff. Compared to many other programmes in H2020, it has a long and proven track record.' (LERU) Top 5 most frequent comments on MCAs: One of the most successful programmes; call for an increase of the budget allocated Knowledge triangle to be reinforced 3. Importance of mobility 4. Bottom-up approach 5. Streamlining ‘The Marie Curie scheme has been particularly successful in encouraging the mobility of researchers across the European Research Area, and providing valuable research training for the predominantly young researchers who form the future of the EU's science base.' (UK Higher Education Sector) ‘The MCA research training and mobility programme is one of the clear success stories of the previous Framework Programmes. It has effectively reached out to and gained respectability amongst the research community.' (VRWI) Education and Culture

17 MSCA Objective Main objective
Ensure the optimum development and dynamic use of Europe’s intellectual capital in order to generate new skills and innovation Rationale Encourage new, creative types of training Identify excellent talents in research and innovation in international competition Make best researchers in Europe and the world work together across countries, sectors and disciplines Create a whole new mind-set in Europe, crucial for entrepreneurship and innovation Education and Culture
