Aim of the event

The event aims to provide participants with an in-depth overview of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Doctoral Networks scheme. Participants will gain a clear understanding of the proposal format for each scheme and the key issues relating to planning, writing and submitting proposals. There will also be ample opportunity to ask questions. 

Background - Aim of MSCA Networks

MSCA networks support joint doctoral programmes, implemented by European partnerships of universities, research institutions, industry (incl. SMEs) and other non-academic organisations. The research training programmes are intended to provide doctoral students with excellent research skills, coupled with experience outside academia to develop their innovative capacities and employment prospects.

The QUASAR Group based at the University of Liverpool has an exceptional track record in the coordination of MSCA networks through leadership in the DITANET, oPAC, LA3NET, OMA and AVA projects. In combination, the Group has been in charge of the training of almost 100 Fellows and has coordinated the research and training at more than 100 partner organizations.

This event will share best practice and provide participants with a detailed understanding of the opportunities (and challenges) that the scheme offers.

Who should attend?

The event is aimed at staff at academic and non-academic organisations in the UK and abroad, including industry, who are planning to participate in one of the next MSCA Doctoral Networks call.
