  6. 6. Background info The changing workforce and technology needs of a global knowledge economy are changing the nature of engineering practice, demanding far broader skills than simply the mastery of scientific and technological disciplines. The growing awareness of the importance of technological innovation to economic competitiveness and societal challenges is demanding for: (1) Strong research or engineering excellence in the study area. (2) Understanding the basics of innovation processes at the individual and organizational levels. (3) Open attitude for activity renewal and adaptation to rapid technology and socio- economic changes in the ICT-sector. (4) Entrepreneurship in adapting one’s own activity or organization to the changing global world. (5) Willingness and skills for intellectual mobility and physical moving between different actors and stakeholders such as industries, business, public sector, venture creators and investors, and decision makers. (6) Engineers working collaboratively in international networks.

  11. 11. MSCA - Activities Action 1 Early-stage researchers Action 2 Experienced researchers Action 3 Exchange of staff Action 4 COFUND Doctoral and initial training of researchers proposed by international networks of organisations from public and private sectors Individual fellowships for most promising experienced researchers to develop their skills through international or inter-sector mobility International and inter-sector cooperation through the exchange of research and innovation staff Co-funding of regional, national and international programmes covering actions 1, 2 and 3
  12. 12. Fostering new skills (MSCA Action 1)  Training through research  Transferable skills training modules  Exposure to both public and private sectors  Addressing triple ‘i’ dimensions: International Interdisciplinary Intersectoral  Aiming to develop research competences combining scientific excellence with business innovation  Equip PhD holders with skills matching public and private sector needs  Joint Research Training Programme
  13. 13. Nurturing excellence(MSCA Action 2)  Individual Fellowships to promote international and inter-sector mobility  Aiming to support attractive career opportunities and facilitate career moves, also between public and private sectors  Enhance competences and creative potential of best researchers, European and non-European willing to work in the EU  In-built possibility of outgoing phase in TC or in private sector
