Target Audience: Academic , Research & Research support staff all levels

ITNs support joint research training and/or doctoral programmes, implemented by partnerships of universities, research institutions, business, SMEs and other socio-economic countries across and beyond Europe.

Participants will gain an understanding of the multi-partner European Training Network (ETN), the European Industrial Doctorate (EID) and the European Joint Doctorate strands of the ITN scheme (including what can be funded, application process, upcoming deadlines, etc).

Participants will gain an understanding of the evaluation criteria, and benefit from the lessons learned from the evaluation of both successful and unsuccessful Strathclyde proposals submitted so far in Horizon 2020.  These hints and tips on the key considerations involved in the planning, writing and submitting of an ITN proposal will help shape your own topic idea, who to include in your consortium, and your training offering in order to maximise your chances of success in this highly competitive scheme.

At the end of the session, you will have:


  • an understanding of the aims of the ITN scheme and the types of projects that can be funded
  • an understanding of the key considerations involved in the planning, writing and submitting of an ITN proposal
  • heard hints and tips from previous grantees which will help to shape your own project idea
