Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions

Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) provide funding opportunities for mobility, training and knowledge exchange at all stages of a researcher's career.

Introduction to Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA)

MSCA seek to promote research as a career and help create a market for researchers within the European Research Area (ERA). It also strongly encourages international collaborations. If you are a researcher or research organisation, find out which Action is right for you. If you are in industry, or in another non-academic sector, find out how you can benefit from getting involved.

There are schemes for individuals to apply directly for funding, and schemes for organisations to apply for funding. The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions are bottom-up and open to all sectors, with the applicant deciding the research area of their project.

The UK Research Office (UKRO) Brussels is the MSCA UK National Contact Point. Further information on the programme and how to apply can be found on the UKRO website. Contact the team for free, impartial advice and to sign up for regular events on how to apply for calls.

Follow UKRO on Twitter and LinkedIn for MSCA programme news and events.
