Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions: €1.75 billion in new calls for researchers and institutions

On the 7th December 2022 the Commission announced new calls to support researchers’ training, skills and career development under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA), the EU’s flagship funding programme under Horizon Europe for doctoral education and postdoctoral training. With a total budget of €6.6 billion over 2021-27, the MSCA support researchers from all over the world, at all stages of their careers and in all disciplines. They also benefit institutions by supporting excellent doctoral, postdoctoral programmes and collaborative research and innovation projects, boosting their global attractiveness and visibility and fostering cooperation beyond academia, including with big companies and SMEs.

The MSCA will provide over €856 million in 2023 and €902 million in 2024 covering the five main actions of the work programme:

  • MSCA Doctoral
  • MSCA Postdoctoral
  • MSCA Staff Exchanges
  • MSCA and Citizens

Under the new work programme, the MSCA will also fund a Feedback to Policy initiative to make stronger thematic links between MSCA projects, raise visibility of their contribution to key EU policy priorities and gather stakeholder feedback on ways to maximise the programme’s impact.

The calls follow the adoption of the Horizon Europe 2023-24 work programme.
