1 H2020 – WP 2014/15 Part 3 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Education and Culture

2 MSCA Objective Ensure the optimum development and dynamic use of Europe’s intellectual capital in order to generate new skills, knowledge and innovation Budget 2014-2020: 6 162 million € Education and Culture

3 MSCA - strategic programming approach  Attract and retain research talent  Develop state-of-the-art, innovative training schemes, consistent with the highly competitive and increasingly inter-disciplinary requirements of research and innovation  Promote sustainable career development in research and innovation  Focus on delivering new knowledge and skills, in line with the key driver identified in the strategic programming approach  Contribute to a strong partnership with MS via the co- funding mechanism

4 Education and Culture Key features of the MSCA part  Open to all domains of research and innovation from basic research up to market take-up and innovation services  Entirely bottom-up  Participation of non-academic sector strongly encouraged, especially industry and SMEs  Mobility as the key requirement - funding on condition participants move from one country to another  Promotion of attractive working and employment conditions  Particular attention to gender balance  Public engagement of supported researchers  2014-2015: 9 calls foreseen -> one call per each MSC action per year + one call covering 2 years of European Researchers' Night

5 Education and Culture Simplification Clear definitions of participants  Two sectors: academic/non-academic  Two groups: beneficiaries and partner organisations Broader understanding of industry involvement: participation of businesses (including SMEs) and other socio-economic actors Streamlined definitions of supported researchers  ESR/ER  Staff members in RISE Mobility rules ~maintained (new Reintegration Panel incorporated in the rules) Portability of IF grants

6 Education and Culture MSCA in H2020 Innovative Training Networks ITNDoctoral and initial training Individual Fellowships IFSupport for experienced researchers undertaking international and inter-sector mobility Research and Innovation Staff Exchange RISEInternational and inter-sector cooperation through the exchange of staff Co-funding of programmes COFUNDCo-funding of regional, national and international programmes: - doctoral programmes - fellowship programmes Support and policy actionsEuropean Researchers' Night (NIGHT) Non call-based activities

7 Education and Culture Innovative Training Networks Main EU programme for structured doctoral training Objective o to raise excellence and structure research and doctoral training o to train a new generation of creative, entrepreneurial and innovative early-stage researcher Scope o European Training Networks (ETN), European Industrial Doctorates (EID) or European Joint Doctorates (EJD) o Triple 'i' dimension of mobility and particular focus on innovation skills o Support to ESR for 3-36 months o Minimum eligibility condition: network of 3 participants (exception: EID with 2 participants only) Expected Impact o to enhance researchers' employability and provide them with new career perspectives

8 Education and Culture Individual Fellowships Objective o to enhance the creative and innovative potential of experienced researchers o to provide opportunities to acquire new knowledge, work on research projects in a European context or outside Europe, resume a career or return to Europe Scope o Individual, trans-national fellowships awarded to the best or most promising researchers o European Fellowships (12-24 months) or Global Fellowships (12-24 months + mandatory return phase of 12 months) o Career Restart Panel and Reintegration Panel o Secondments, notably in the non-academic sector, embedded in the career development Expected Impact o to release the full potential of researchers and to catalyse significant development in their careers in both the academic and non-academic sectors

9 Education and Culture Research and Innovation Staff Exchange Objective o to promote international and inter-sector collaboration through research and innovation staff exchanges o to foster a shared culture of research and innovation Scope o International and inter-sector collaboration and transfer of knowledge o Joint research and innovation project o Secondments of staff members for 1-12 months o Minimum eligibility condition: participants in 3 different countries (at least 2 MS/AC) o Within Europe: only inter-sector secondments o No secondments between institutions located outside Europe or within the same MS/AC Expected Impact o to strengthen the interaction between organisations in the academic and non- academic sectors, and between Europe and third countries

10 Education and Culture COFUND Objective o to stimulate regional, national or international programmes to foster excellence in researchers' training, mobility and career development Scope o Co-funding new or existing regional, national, and international programmes to open up to, and provide for, international, intersectoral and interdicisplinary research training, as well as transnational and cross-sector mobility of researchers at all stages of their career o Possibilities of synergies with structural funds o Doctoral Programmes (for ESR) and Fellowship Programmes (for ER) o Researchers to comply with the mobility rules of the MSCA o Minimum support for researchers: 3 months o Implemented by a sole beneficiary Expected Impact o to exploit synergies between European Union actions and those at regional, national, and international level, and leverage funding

11 Education and Culture European Researchers' Night Objective o to bring researchers closer to the general public o to increase awareness of research and innovation activities Scope o Yearly event, typically on the last Friday of the month of September o Focus on the general public, addressing and attracting people regardless of the level their scientific background o Special focus on pupils and students o Promotion of the European dimension and gender balance in research and innovation o Involvement of researchers funded by Horizon 2020 Expected Impact o to raise awareness of the importance of research careers o in the long term, to encourage young people to embark on scientific careers
