ITNs to fund 2,000 outstanding doctoral candidates

With a total budget of €530 million, the European Commission has announced that it will support 147 Innovative Training Networks (ITNs) under the programme.

These networks cover nearly 1400 organisations – including 158 Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) – as part of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions. The projects will offer extraordinary, global research and training opportunities to 2,000 PhD candidates. They will also contribute to increasing the overall quality and innovation of doctoral training in Europe and beyond.

The doctoral training programmes include 114 European Training Networks, 21 European Industrial Doctorates and 12 European Joint Doctorates. The selected projects cover a variety of research areas, including engineering (31%), life sciences (24%) and social sciences (10%).
