Marie Curie Actions. From 7PM to HORIZON 2020, by Susana Gimeno (UPCT)

  1. 1. MED-SOUK: I Congreso Internacional Campus Mare Nostrum de Jovenes Investigadores en el Mediterraneo 23th October of 2013
  2. 2. CONTENTS 7th Framework Programme  People Programme  Results of the Programme Horizon 2020  Marie Skłodowska Curie Actions
  3. 3. 7PM- People Programme Marie Curie Fellowships are European research grants available to researchers regardless of their nationality or field of research. In addition to generous research funding scientists have the possibility to gain experience abroad and in the private sector, and to complete their training with competences or disciplines useful for their careers. Budget: 4.750 M€ Advantage MC Funding Fund all the domains of research (bottom-up approach). 100% financing rate (except COFUND). Support mobility, transnational and intersectoral Major business and academic collaboration and staff exchange
  4. 4. CLASSIFICATION There are 3 groups: Individual Grants > Fellowships > Grants Actions for networks > Initial Training Networks (ITN) > Industry-Academia Partnerships and Pathways (IAPP) > International Research Staff Exchange Scheme (IRSES) Others > Cofund > European Researchers' Night
  5. 5. ELIGIBILITY  EXPERIENCED RESEARCHER (ER): Supported researchers fall into two categories (4-10)  Being in possession of a doctoral degree  Having at least 4 years of full-time equivalent research experience. (>10) having more 10 years research work experience  TRANSNATIONAL MOBILITY: researchers shall not have resided or carried out their main activity (work , studies, etc) in the country of their host organisation for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the reference date.  ANY NATIONALITY - EU Member States and Associated Countries - Third countries
  6. 6. INDIVIDUAL GRANTS IEF / IIF / IOF / CIG Intra-European Fellowships Mobility between EU or Associated Countries Training & Skill development/ diversification Career Development Professional Independence *Carrer restart panel Duration of support: 12-24 months International Incoming Fellowships Top-class Researchers from 3rd Country’s move to EU/ AC to work on research projects. Knowledge Sharing / Transfer from a 3rd Country to EU/AC Host Organisation – builds collaborations between EU/AC & the rest of the world Duration of support: 12-24 months 12 months for return phase International Outgoing Fellowships Career Integration Grant (CIG) Advanced Researcher training in a 3rd country (through a high level research project,) to bring skills/ knowledge back to the EU/AS Research project funding to supports a fellow integrating back into research career in Europe. Duration of support: 12-24 months 12 months for mandatory return phase Fixed amount €25 000 flat rate funding used for: Part of researchers salary (or other staff on project); Equipment, Consumables, Travel; & Overheads/ Management costs. Duration of support: For 2-4 years

  15. 15. Innovative Training Networks (ITN) It can take the form of collaborative European Training Networks (ETN): ETN: European Training Networks EID: European Industrial Doctorates* EJD: European Joint Doctorates They must be created by at least three beneficiaries (or at least two for EID) located in different EU Member States and/or Associated Countries. Above this minimum, the participation of institutions from any country or organisation is possible under the conditions provided by the Horizon 2020 Rules for Participation Early-stage researchers (ESR) ITN: 3-36 months Researchers in EID shall spend at least 50% of their time in the non-academic sector
  16. 16. Individual Fellowships (IF) In Individual Fellowships (IF), the beneficiary shall be a participant established in an EU Member State or Associated Country and employing the researcher during the project. Experienced researchers (ER) 2 actions: IF European: 12-24 months IF Global: 12-24 months for the outgoing phase plus 12 month return phase in Europe
  17. 17. RISE-COFUND Participants in the Research and Innovation Staff Exchange (RISE) shall be established in at least three different countries of which at least two must be EU Member States and/or Associated Countries . If all participants are from the same sector (either only academic or only non-academic), at least one participant must be from a third country. Above this minimum, the participation of institutions from any country or organisation is possible under the conditions provided by the Horizon 2020 Rules for Participation. Participants in the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Co-funding of regional, national and international programmes (COFUND) shall be legal entities established in an EU Member State or Associated Country that fund or manage doctoral programmes or fellowship programmes for researchers. International European interest organisations that fund manage doctoral programmes or fellowship programmes for researchers can also participate in this action.
