34 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions under Horizon 2020 Proposed Budget (2014-2020): € 5.75 billion 1.Fostering new skills through excellent initial training of researchers 2.Nurturing excellence through cross-border and cross-sector mobility 3.Stimulating innovation through cross- fertilisation of knowledge 4.Increasing structural impact by co-funding the activities 5.Specific support and policy action Horizon 2020

35 COFUND Innovative networks supporting early-stage training (Including Industrial doctorates & Joint doctorates) ITN Early-Stage Researchers RISE Exchange of Staff IF Experienced Researchers COFUND Co-funding Individual fellowship supporting experienced researchers undertaking mobility International and inter-sector cooperation through research and innovation staff exchange Co-funding of regional, national and international programmes funding doctoral and postdoctoral researchers ITN IAPP IRSES IEF IOF IIF CIG Horizon 2020

36 Innovative Training Networks (ITN) Dedicated to early-stage researchers (no ER recruitment) Involving wide partnership of institutions from academic and non- academic sectors Based on FP7 ITNs experience + support to joint doctorates Addressing triple 'i' dimension of mobility Combining scientific excellence with innovation-oriented approach Developing entrepreneurship and skills matching research labour market needs Enhancing employability of researchers MSCA - main EU programme for structured doctoral training

37 Individual Fellowships (IF) Opportunities for international and inter-sector mobility of ER to facilitate career moves Enhance competences and creative potential of best researchers, European and non-European willing to work in the EU Encompass intra-European, incoming, outgoing mobility and re-integration Possibility of inter-sector secondments

38 Research and Innovation Staff Exchange (RISE) New type of exchange of staff action to stimulate transfer of knowledge Flexible inter-sector (within Europe) and international (with 3 rd countries) exchanges of highly skilled research and innovation staff No recruitment foreseen Single eligibility rule for partnership consortia Based on a common research project

39 COFUND Stimulating regional, national and international programmes to foster excellence Spreading best practices of MSCA in terms of international mobility, research training, career development Extended to doctoral training Building on experience from FP7 COFUND – evaluation results available: COFUND is enhancing the international dimension of a number of national and regionally-based fellowship programmes in ways that are not open to Individual Fellowships Modest positive impact on operational and administrative procedures of host institutions (COFUND) Contributing to a gradual ‘levelling up’ in employment conditions for researchers

40 Inter-institutional discussions Council Framework Programme Regulation: Partial General Approach (PGA) reached on 31 May 2012 Rules for Participation and Dissemination: PGA reached on 10 October Specific Programme: PGA reached on 11 December 2012 MSCA: Impact across the programme on the innovativeness of the private sector Importance of industrial doctorates Mobility for European brain gain – importance of (re)integration Extension of co-funding, involve private sector Synergies with Erasmus for All, Structural Funds, KICs

41 European Parliament ITRE Committee vote on 28 November 2012 Importance of widening participation Building synergies between Horizon 2020 and Structural Funds Establishing bridges with national and regional initiatives 20% of budget for SMEs Open access to publications and scientific data MSCA: Increase of budget (from 7.2% to 8.3% of H2020) Importance of joint and industrial doctorates Promoting excellence in less innovation performing regions Measures to remove obstacles to the mobility of female researchers Support for outgoing mobility followed by return to Europe "Seal of excellence" on positively evaluated projects (not funded) Inter-institutional discussions
