New guide exploring opportunities arising from synergies between MSCA and the EIT
Interested in applying for MSCA funding? You might not know the programme’s synergies with the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT). A new publication explains the programmes’ connections and potential benefits.
fostering research and innovation in Europe through cooperation between higher education, research, and non-academic sectors
equipping research and entrepreneurial talents with the knowledge and skills to match future labour market needs, to innovate and to create products and services for economic and social benefit
A new guide for organisations or individuals involved in either programme illustrates how their project could benefit from the activities of other projects and innovation communities, or inspire a spinoff project in the other programme.
For example, a partner organisation in an EIT Knowledge and Innovation Community could apply for MSCA funding to develop a postdoctoral programme, thereby bringing state-of-the-art innovation training while at the same time developing partners beyond the Knowledge and Innovation Community network.
The many other possibilities include
short staff or student mobility involving Knowledge and Innovation Community’s partner organisations under MSCA Staff Exchanges
MSCA researchers being seconded to an organisation within a Knowledge and Innovation Community’s network
organisations already working on MSCA projects taking part with EIT Knowledge and Innovation Community partners in the HEI Initiative (Innovation capacity building for higher education institutions)
