20 http://www.ukro.ac.uk Marie Curie Initial Training Networks

21 What is an ITN? FP7 – Marie Curie - ITN Aims: Offering a series of fellowships to ESR and EXR through a Joint Training Programme including complementary skills modules – focus on development of early-stage researchers Covers networking costs & the organisation of short training events As an option, can recruit visiting scientists ITNs are in: Defined scientific fields as well as inter-disciplinary, new and emerging supra-disciplinary fields

22 Who can participate in an ITN? FP7 – Marie Curie - ITN At least 3 different research groups from Member or Associated States BUT ALSO it can be single sites (in Member or Associated States) if the international context is strong – role of associated partners key Third country partners are eligible, in addition to the minimum requirements. International Co- operation Partner Countries (ICPC) may receive funding, whilst those in non-ICPCs may receive funding if absolutely essential for the project

23 Who participates in an ITN? FP7 – Marie Curie - ITN An ITN has both industrial and academic partners. Industry involvement essential at one of two levels: As a full partner Provider of specific training or secondment opportunities Note: the third-level option of involvement through membership of an advisory board is no longer available

24 Who participates in an ITN? FP7 – Marie Curie - ITN Private sector partners: must be organisations gaining the majority of their revenue through competitive means with exposure to commercial markets. Industry representatives can participate but do not satisfy this criterion Think broadly about potential private sector partners – end users? ITN must have Coherent quality standards and mutual recognition of training/ diplomas

25 Who can you recruit to an ITN? FP7 – Marie Curie - ITN An ITN supports researchers: With up to 5 years FTE From all over the world For periods of 3 - 36 months (ESRs) For periods of up to 24 months (EXRs) Researchers can be of any nationality but must comply with the mobility rule

27 http://www.ukr Industry Academia Partnerships and Pathways (IAPPs)

28 What is an Industry–Academia Pathways and Partnership? FP7 – Marie Curie - IAPP It is a two-way partnership with at least one commercial enterprise and one academic organisation in two different Member or Associated Countries An IAPP aims to increase industry-academia co-operation by: Supporting the creation, development, reinforcement and execution of strategic partnerships Creating diverse career possibilities and experience for researchers Knowledge sharing/cultural exchange, especially SMEs Aiming for longer term co-operation between both sectors

29 What can you do with an IAPP? FP7 – Marie Curie - IAPP Staff exchange – early stage or experienced researchers (and possibly technical staff and research managers!) for between 2 months and 2 years (mandatory) Recruit experienced researchers for between 12 months and 2 years (optional) Newly recruited experienced researchers must be appointed under employment contracts only Focus of the scheme is on inter-sectoral mobility Organise common workshops/conferences For SMEs, a contribution towards small equipment costs (up to 10% of project total)

30 Definitions of eligible organisations FP7 – Marie Curie - IAPP Each IAPP must involve at least one university/research centre in the non-commercial sector and at least one entity from the commercial sector. An IAPP project can be co- ordinated by a partner from either of the two sectors Commercial sector partners: must be organisations operating on a commercial enterprise, gaining the majority of their revenue through competitive means with exposure to commercial markets. may include: incubators; start-ups; spin-offs; venture- capital companies; etc. may range in size from the smallest- micro-companies with research capacity to very large multi-national enterprises

31 Definitions of eligible organisations FP7 – Marie Curie - IAPP Non-commercial sector partners can include; National organisations, e.g., universities, public non- commercial research centres Non-profit or charitable organisations (e.g., NGOs, trusts, etc.) International European interest organisations (e.g. CERN) The Joint Research Centre of the European Commission Other international organisations (e.g. WHO, UNESCO, etc.)

34 What is the International Staff Exchange Scheme (IRSES)? FP7 – Marie Curie - IRSES A scheme aimed at Strengthening research partnerships through staff exchanges and networking activities Support to research organisations establish or reinforce long-term research co-operation through a coordinated joint programme of exchange for researchers for short periods Encourages exchange of best practice

35 What is IRSES? Two-way staff secondments between institutions in EU/AC and eligible third countries At least two participants from two different MS/AC and one partner from an eligible third country Secondment – up to 12 months Project duration of 24 – 48 months Commission contribution: EUR 1900/ researcher/month for EU/AC secondments plus EUR 200 per researcher/month long distance allowance (where applicable) Deadline:17 March 2011 FP7 – Marie Curie - IRSES

50 LECHE: Lactase persistence and the early Cultural History of Europe This large (15 researcher, 24 participants) European training network explores the origin and impact of dairying Europe. The participating researchers will draw on the latest genetic studies of modern humans and domestic animals to identify markers of specific traits, but will also travel back in time and search for these in ancient remains.
