Mobility Programs

In this section you will find an overview of the main mobility programs.


H2020 – Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions
In the framework of the first pillar of Horizon 2020, Excellence Science,  the Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions (MSCA) provide grants for all stages of researchers' careers - be they doctoral candidates or highly experienced researchers - and encourage transnational, intersectoral and interdisciplinary mobility. The MSCA aim to equip researchers with the necessary skills and international experience for a successful career, either in the public or the private sector. The programme responds to the challenges sometimes faced by researchers, offering them attractive working conditions and the opportunity to move between academic and other settings. The MSCA are open to all domains of research and innovation, which are chosen freely by the applicants (individuals and/or organisations) in a fully 'bottom-up' manner.

ERC – European Research Council
The ERC's mission is to encourage the highest quality research in Europe through competitive funding and to support investigator-driven frontier research across all fields, on the basis of scientific excellence. The ERC complements other funding activities in Europe such as those of the national research funding agencies, and is a flagship component of Horizon 2020, the European Union's Research Framework Programme for 2014 to 2020.

Erasmus + is the new EU programme for Education, Training, Youth and Sport for 2014-2020. It will provide opportunities to study, train, gain work experience and volunteer abroad. Furthermore it will support transnational partnerships among Education, Training and Youth institutions and organisations to foster cooperation and bridge the worlds of Education and work in order to tackle the skills gaps we are facing in Europe.

COST is a unique means for European researchers, engineers and scholars to jointly develop their own ideas and new initiatives across all fields of science and technology through trans-European networking of nationally funded research activities. It constitutes a “bridge” towards the scientific communities of COST Inclusiveness Target Countries and it also increases the mobility of researchers across Europe and fosters the establishment of scientific excellence.
