MSCA is a EU programme financed by HORIZON 2020, which supports research training and career development focused on innovation skills. The programme funds worldwide and cross-sector mobility that implements excellent research in any field.
There are MSCA grants for all stages of a researcher’s career, from PhD candidates to highly experienced researchers, which encourage transnational, intersectoral and interdisciplinary mobility.  Endowing researchers with new skills and a wider range of competences, while offering them attractive working conditions, is a crucial aspect of the MSCA. In addition to fostering mobility between countries, the MSCA also seeks to break the real and perceived barriers between academic and other sectors, especially business. Several MSCA initiatives promote the involvement of industry etc in doctoral and post-doctoral research.
