EC: FP7 Call for Marie Curie Initial Training Networks

With this grant, senior researcher can apply for funding for PhD students. Different settings are possible: Multi-partner networks, public private, or sole participants, see below.

This action aims to improve career perspectives of early-stage researchers in both public and private sectors. This will be achieved through a trans-national networking mechanism, aimed at structuring the existing high-quality initial research training capacity throughout Member States and associated countries. Direct or indirect involvement of organisations from different sectors, including (lead-) participation by private enterprises in appropriate fields, is considered essential in the action. In particular, the action aims to add to the employability of the recruited researchers through exposure to both academia and enterprise, thus extending the traditional academic research training setting and eliminating cultural and other barriers to mobility.

Deadline: Thursday 22 November 2012 at 17:00. It is a single-stage submission and evaluation procedure.
