The Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions support researchers at all stages of their careers, regardless of age and nationality. Researchers working across all disciplines are eligible for funding. The MSCA also support cooperation between industry and academia and innovative training to enhance employability and career development.
How to get started
To get funding, either respond to a job vacancy or submit a proposal, together with an organisation, to one of the calls published every year. Calls are published on the Participant Portal, the single-entry point for research and innovation programmes run by the European Union.
How to apply
The Participant Portal will guide you through the process of preparing and submitting a proposal.
The EU’s Research Executive Agency (REA) evaluates all eligible proposals, identifying those good enough to receive funding. The evaluation is based on a peer-review carried out by independent experts.
REA then establishes grant agreements with applicants whose proposals have passed the evaluation stage. The process is designed to work for you! Thousands of individuals and organisations have secured grant funding – If you want to know more about the application process, you can soon check out our infographic.
How to manage your project
When managing a project that has received EU funding, you will be expected to:
- keep good, up-to-date records throughout the project’s lifetime;
- provide progress reports and information about payments;
- submit a list of deliverables;
- devise a plan for the dissemination and exploitation of results; and
- allow the EU to carry out any necessary checks, audits, reviews and investigations.
Project coordinators should also make steps to acknowledge funding from the EU.
