Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) target the development of excellent researchers through international and cross-sector mobility. MSCA networks support joint doctoral programmes, implemented by European partnerships of universities, research institutions, industry (incl. SMEs) and other non-academic organisations. The research training programmes are intended to provide doctoral students with excellent research skills, coupled with experience outside academia to develop their innovative capacities and employment prospects.
The QUASAR Group based at the University of Liverpool/Cockcroft Institute has an exceptional track record in the coordination of MSCA networks through leadership in the DITANET, oPAC, LA3NET, OMA and AVA projects. In combination, the Group has been in charge of the training of almost 100 Fellows and has coordinated the research and training at more than 100 partner organizations.
This workshop will share best practice and provide participants with a detailed understanding of the opportunities (and challenges) that the scheme offers. It is aimed at staff at academic and non-academic organisations in the UK and abroad, including industry, who are planning to participate in one of the next MSCA Doctoral Networks call, either as PI/CoI or admin staff.
The event is free of charge and will be hosted at the University of Liverpool on 29 September 2021. Remote connection will be made available and some of the speakers will join online.
