MSCA ogłoszenie

The call for proposals for the MSCA Doctoral Networks 2024 competition is now open. 608.6 million euros under “Horizon Europe,” the EU’s key program for research and innovation, will be used to fund more than 160 projects in all fields of science, to further advance and develop the skills of 2,400 doctoral students.

The goal of MSCA Doctoral Networks 2024 is to implement doctoral training programs through partnerships of academic institutions and organizations from different sectors in Europe and beyond, to train highly qualified doctoral students, stimulate their creativity, increase their innovative potential and enhance their long-term employability.

Applications are open for international consortia of universities, research institutes, companies (including small and medium-sized ones) and other non-academic institutions. The call will close on November 27 this year.

The consortium must be composed of a minimum of three independent institutions, registered in an EU member country or a Horizon Europe affiliated country, at least one of which is registered in an EU member country. Beyond this minimum, other organizations, institutions and companies from around the world can be included in the consortium. It must include at least one institution with the authority to grant degrees and titles.

The standard Doctoral Network (DN) is a program of doctoral studies carried out in partner organizations (universities, research institutes, companies, other socio-economic entities) from various European and non-European countries. The project can last up to four years.

Industrial Doctorates (ID) are designed to enable the training of doctoral students wishing to develop their skills outside academia, particularly in business and industry.

Joint Doctorates (JD) are highly integrated, international, inter-sectoral and interdisciplinary projects offering doctoral studies that should culminate in a joint doctoral degree awarded by universities or research institutes from the consortium. The project can last up to five years.

The application should be submitted for one of eight panels, i.e.: chemistry (CHE), social sciences and humanities (SOC), economic sciences (ECO), computer science and engineering (ENG), environmental and earth sciences (ENV), life sciences (LIF), mathematics (MAT), physics (PHY). Proposals will be evaluated in panels, each of which will create a separate ranking list that includes all 3 types of networks.

Each partner in the consortium must recruit at least one doctoral student and can organize secondments for them anywhere in the world.

The National Contact Point for MSCA at the National Agency for Academic Exchange organized training for the competition, which was also attended by representatives of the Nicolaus Copernicus Superior School. We encourage you to read the NAWA materials.
