MSCA Doctoral Networks (MSCA-DN)
"Joining this prestigious research network enabled me to obtain funding for my research and lab, and deepen my academic connections by getting to know other researchers across Europe.
These new connections have produced new networks, within which we hope to submit other grant proposals to other international competitive funding agencies".
Prof. Anat Barnea, Department of Natural Sciences, partner in the "ChickenStress" ETN Network
Aim to train creative, entrepreneurial, innovative and resilient doctoral candidates, able to face current and future challenges and to convert knowledge and ideas into products and services for economic and social benefit.
The MSCA DN will raise the attractiveness and excellence of doctoral training in Europe. They will equip researchers with the right combination of research-related and transferable competences and provide them with enhanced career perspectives on both the academic and non-academic sectors through international, interdisciplinary and inter-sectoral mobility combined with an innovation-oriented mind-set.
The MSCA DN focus on career development plan, supervision, training: research and transferable skills.
One action to set up doctoral programmes, including:
Industrial Doctorates: Training in academia and industry, Joint supervision
Joint Doctorates: Joint collaborations leading to a joint/multiple doctoral degree, Joint selection and supervision; pre agreement for joint degrees is required.
