Be prepared with Eurice Training Workshops on H2020 Proposal Writing

New calls for MSCA-ITN Proposals

On Wednesday, September 27, Eurice and TH Köln (University of Applied Sciences Cologne) organised a workshop on Innovative Training Networks (ITNs) where Eurice expert Ingo Trempeck presented an overview of the overall structure of MSCA-ITN proposals and gave hands-on information for proposal preparation.

The Marie-Curie ITN programme (and its sub-programmes ETN and EID) aim to support the career development and training of researchers – with a focus on innovation skills – in all scientific disciplines, through international and intersectoral mobility. The main focus of these programmes is to provide cutting-edge doctoral training to enhance career perspectives of young researchers in both the academic and non-academic sectors.

The workshop addressed all relevant aspects of ITN proposal writing including consortium structure, proper involvement of SMEs, presentation of convincing research and training programmes, recruitment and supervision of ESRs as well as dissemination and exploitation activities.

Be aware that these programmes are highly competitive with success rates around 5 and 10% for the ETN and the EID respectively. That’s why you need to be well-prepared for writing a competitive ITN proposal. Eurice might help you to set up your proposal in such a way that it meets the goals of the Marie Curie programme perfectly.

Eurice supports not only the writing of MSCA-ITN proposals, but offers comprehensive management services for the whole implementation of the training networks, such as the "EU-GliaPhD" network focusing on Cell Biology and Pathology of Neuroglia. More information:
