Publication on Synergies between the MSCA and the EIT
Since 1996, the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) have become the EU’s reference programme for doctoral education and postdoctoral training. The European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) was established in 2008 in order to contribute to sustainable economic growth and competitiveness by reinforcing the innovation capacity of the EU and its Member States. In order to allow interested stakeholders to explore the full potential of the opportunities offered under the MSCA and under the EIT programme, this guide provides an overview of the different types of actions under the respective programmes and gives examples of how stakeholders involved in one programme could benefit from actions under the other. This guide can notably be used by organisations or individuals involved in one of the two programmes to consider how their project could:
- benefit from activities of projects and innovation communities working in the same research and innovation fields, or
- provide the basis for a spin-off project in the other programme.
The brochure of 16 pages is available here.
