1 FP7 /1 EUROPEAN COMMISSION - Research DG - September 2006 Building a Europe of Knowledge Towards the Seventh Framework Programme PEOPLE MARIE CURIE ACTIONS Dr. Maria Georgiadou Research Training Networks Human Factor, Mobility & Marie Curie Actions Directorate General Research European Commission Phone

2 FP7 /2 EUROPEAN COMMISSION - Research DG - September 2006 FP –2013 | Specific Programmes + Ideas – Frontier Research Capacities – Research Capacity People – Marie Curie Actions Cooperation – Collaborative research JRC (non-nuclear) JRC (nuclear) Euratom

3 FP7 /3 EUROPEAN COMMISSION - Research DG - September 2006 FP7 budget (€ billion, current prices)

4 FP7 /4 EUROPEAN COMMISSION - Research DG - September 2006 People - Marie Curie Actions FP7 Overall scope  Part of integrated Human resource development policy in EU R&D  Attract/retain numerous, well-trained, motivated researchers in EU  Attract students to research careers  Development of Skills and of sustainable career  Continuity of previous Framework programme, with focus on structuring impact, while simplifying  Appropriate gender balance  Increased private sector participation and international dimension

5 FP7 /5 EUROPEAN COMMISSION - Research DG - September 2006 * Open to third-country nationals People – Marie Curie Actions  Initial training of researches  (Marie Curie) Networks for Early Stage Researchers *  Life-long training and career development  Individual Fellowships  Co-funding of regional, national and international programs  Industry-academia pathways and partnerships  Industry-Academia partnership Scheme*  International dimension  Outgoing & Incoming International Fellowships  International Cooperation Scheme  Reintegration grants  Support to researcher ‘diasporas’  Specific actions  Mobility and career enhancement actions  Excellence awards

6 FP7 /6 EUROPEAN COMMISSION - Research DG - September 2006 Initial Training: Marie Curie Networks for Early Stage Training Objectives  Strengthen and structure Early Stage Training at European level  Attract to scientific careers  Improve career perspectives by broad skills development (including industrial needs)

7 FP7 /7 EUROPEAN COMMISSION - Research DG - September 2006 Initial Training: Marie Curie Networks for Early Stage Training Main features  International network of participants or international cooperation in research training  Industry involvement  Joint Training Programme with (i) training through research (ii) complementary competences modules  Coherent quality standards/mutual recognition of training/diplomas  Allowances for ‘early-stage’ researchers and “Chair” positions; Contribution to training costs; Short training events open to also researchers from outside the network

8 FP7 /8 EUROPEAN COMMISSION - Research DG - September 2006 Life-long Training and Career Development Marie Curie Individual Fellowships Objectives  Support competence diversification and career development of experienced researchers  Greater impact by co-funding (inter)national fellowship programmes with same objectives and replying to specific conditions (i.e. transnational mobility; peer review selection of fellows; minimum social security coverage for fellows)

9 FP7 /9 EUROPEAN COMMISSION - Research DG - September 2006 Life-long Training and Career Development Marie Curie Individual Fellowships Main features  ‘Classic’ mode: selection/funding of individual fellows through EC calls  ‘Co-funding’ mode:  Selection of ‘co-funded’ regional, national, international programs through open calls with excellence-based evaluation criteria (no nationality quota)  Selected programmes operated in full autonomy by co-funding body  Community funding proportional to (i) Global programme budget (ii) Number of fellows selected complying with the trans-nationality criteria

10 FP7 /10 EUROPEAN COMMISSION - Research DG - September 2006 Marie Curie Industry-academia partnerships and pathways Objectives  Increased industry-academia cooperation  Diverse career possibilities and research experience for researchers  Increasing the industry involvement in all Marie Curie Actions  Knowledge sharing/cultural exchange, in particular SMEs

11 FP7 /11 EUROPEAN COMMISSION - Research DG - September 2006 Marie Curie Industry-academia partnerships and pathways Industry-academia knowledge-sharing scheme  Embedded in longer-term co-operation between both sectors  Two-way staff secondments/recruitment of experienced researchers from outside the partnership  Organisation of common workshops/conferences, including for researchers from outside the partnership  Salary costs of seconded researchers/recruited experienced researchers  Special measure: specific equipment costs for SMEs

12 FP7 /12 EUROPEAN COMMISSION - Research DG - September 2006 Marie Curie International dimension Objectives  Reinforce the international (extra-European) dimension of the European Research Area as fundamental component of the EU’s human resources in R&D  Build sustainable connections through mobile researchers

13 FP7 /13 EUROPEAN COMMISSION - Research DG - September 2006 Marie Curie International dimension Main features  Career development/life-long training for EU researchers: Outgoing fellowships, with mandatory return Return and reintegration for European researchers abroad  International co-operation through researchers from third countries: All Marie Curie host driven actions open to third country nationals Incoming fellowships for knowledge enhancement and collaboration enrichment (optional return for researchers from certain areas) International cooperation scheme with EU neighbouring countries and S&T agreement countries Support to ‘scientific diasporas’ of Europeans abroad and foreigners within Europe

14 FP7 /14 EUROPEAN COMMISSION - Research DG - September 2006 Specific Actions for Policy Development  Implementation of the Mobility Strategy  Enhancement of researchers’ careers and profession  Public awareness, including Marie Curie Awards

15 FP7 /15 EUROPEAN COMMISSION - Research DG - September 2006 Participation of Women in Marie Curie Actions Objectives  No separate action but integrated in all actions  > 40% female participation in Marie Curie actions  Strong promotion, but no positive discrimination  Support resumption after career break  Family-friendly implementation modalities, e.g. family allowances; flexibility for split stays
