Innovative Training Networks (ITN-ETN)

Call for Proposals

Innovative Training Networks (ITN-ETN)

The Call for Proposals MSCA-ITN-2015-ETN “Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Networks (ITN-ETN)” sub call of H2020-MSCA-ITN-2015 “Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Networks (ITN)” has been published by the European Commission, Directorate Research and Innovation.

 

The purpose of the current “Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Networks (ITN-ETN)” call is to train a new generation of creative, entrepreneurial and innovative early-stage researchers, able to face current and future challenges and to convert knowledge and ideas into products and services for economic and social benefit.

 

The actions in the framework of the current “Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Networks (ITN-ETN)” aims to raise excellence and structure research and doctoral training, extending the traditional academic research training setting, and equipping researchers with the right combination of research-related and transferable competences. They will provide enhanced career perspectives in both the academic and non-academic sectors through international, interdisciplinary and intersectoral mobility combined with an innovation-oriented mind-set.

 

The scope of the current “Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Networks (ITN-ETN)” call is to exploit complementary competences of the participants, and enable networking activities, the organisation of workshops and conferences to facilitate sharing of knowledge, new skills acquisition and the career development of researchers. Training responds to well identified needs in defined research areas, with appropriate references to interdisciplinary fields. It should be primarily focused on scientific and technological knowledge through research on individual, personalised projects.

 

exploit complementary competences of the participants, and enable networking activities, the organisation of workshops and conferences to facilitate sharing of knowledge, new skills acquisition and the career development of researchers.

 

The actions in the framework of the current “Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Networks (ITN-ETN)” call are expected to have an impact on:

- Creation and contribution to high-quality innovative research and doctoral training, build capacity, and have a structuring effect throughout Europe and beyond;

- Through research training provided by the institutions from different countries, sectors and disciplines, these actions will trigger cooperation between organisations from the academic and non-academic sectors.

- enhancing skills development and knowledge-sharing, increasing researchers' employability and providing them with new career perspectives;

- shaping future generations of entrepreneurial researchers capable of contributing effectively to the knowledge-based economy and society;

- In the long term, they will also raise the attractiveness of research careers and encourage young people to embark on this career path.

 

European Training Networks (ETN) are multi-partner research training networks and must be composed of at least three beneficiaries established in at least three different EU Member States or Associated Countries. Above this minimum, the participation of other organisations, including international organisations and those from Other Third Countries, is possible under the conditions provided by the Horizon 2020 Rules for Participation. Although there is no pre-defined size for these multi-partner networks, it is strongly recommended to keep the size of the consortium between 6 and 10 beneficiaries. It is expected that beneficiaries will be drawn from the academic and non-academic sectors and that ETN proposals will offer intersectoral and interdisciplinary research training as well as high-quality supervision arrangements. Each beneficiary must recruit and host at least one ESR.

 

Under the current “Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Networks (ITN-ETN)” call, the following supporting documents will be required to determine the operational capacity:

- A description of the profile of the persons who will be primarily responsible for carrying out the proposed work;

- A description of any significant infrastructure or any major items of technical equipment, relevant to the proposed work;

- A description of any partner organisations that are not represented as beneficiaries, but who will nonetheless be contributing towards the work.

 

The total budget earmarked for the co-financing of the action is estimated at EUR 370 000 maximum. The maximum duration of support will be four years from the starting date specified in the Agreement.

 

The deadline for submitting proposals in the framework of the current “Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Networks (ITN-ETN)” call for proposals is 13 January 2015.
