MSCA Doctoral Networks (formerly MSCA ITNs) support doctoral programmes, implemented by partnerships of organisations from different sectors across Europe and beyond, to train highly skilled doctoral candidates.  MSCA aim to develop attractive career opportunities, equip researchers with necessary skills and international experience and generate new skills, knowledge and innovation. 


Doctoral Networks are open to international, multi-disciplinary consortia of universities, research institutes, businesses and other organisations proposing networks in any area of research. 


Participants will gain an understanding of the different types of networks (traditional, Industrial and Joint), what will be funded, the application process, evaluation criteria and upcoming deadlines.  Hints and tips on the key considerations involved in the planning, writing and submission of a doctoral network will also be presented.


The University has a strong track record in successfully applying for MSCA ITNs (predecessor to Doctoral Networks) and participants will benefit from hearing lessons learned from the evaluation of previously submitted Strathclyde proposals.


This information session will be of interest to those planning an application to the upcoming November deadline and future deadlines, as well as those simply interested in learning more about the opportunities.
