The European Commission is to spend €435m on boosting the training of doctoral candidates in science with a focus on industrial experience.

This is intended to address a key lack of scientific skills across the region, as highlighted by the EU CHIPS Act for semiconductors.

The 2023 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) Doctoral Networks is is expected to fund over 130 doctorates spanning all scientific fields as well as the training and skills development of 1,600 doctoral candidates.  

The budget will fund doctoral programmes implemented by international partnerships of organisations from different sectors across Europe and beyond. Besides regular doctorates, specific incentives are provided to set up Industrial Doctorates, which train researchers and develop their skills outside academia, particularly in industry, businesses and the public sector, and Joint Doctorates, which offer integrated training programmes leading to joint or multiple degrees.

The call will close on 28 November 2023.

“The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Doctoral Networks raise the attractiveness and excellence of doctoral training in Europe and beyond. They equip researchers with research and transferable competencies and skills, enhancing their career prospects and international connections,” said Vice-President for promoting our European Way of Life, Margaritis Schinas.

More information on the 2023 Doctoral Networks call and on how to apply is available online. Potential applicants can also attend the dedicated information day on 14 June 2023
