The Marie Curie Initial Training Networks are international partnerships created by research teams in different Member or Associate States, which, through a common project, promote the initial training of researchers in the beginning of their careers. These projects are aimed at improving their research and complementary skills, help them join established research teams, and enhance their career prospects in both public and private sectors.
A network should comprise at least three participants (e.g. universities, research centres, companies, SMEs) proposing a coherent research training programme. However, in certain cases single or twinning host organisations may also be eligible.
Proposals from all areas of scientific and technological research of interest to the European Union are welcome.
Networks will be selected competitively following an evaluation process. Proposals are evaluated by external independent experts against a series of predetermined criteria and selected for funding for up to 4 years.
Support will be provided for:
Deadline for submissions: 22 November 2012, 17:00:00, Brussels local time (16:00:00, Lisbon local time).
