MSCA – Postdoctoral Fellowships

The goal of MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowships (in Horizon 2020, Individual Fellowships) is to enhance the creative and innovative potential of researchers holding a PhD, wishing to acquire new skills through advanced training, international, interdisciplinary and inter-sectoral mobility. The scheme supports academic projects but does strongly encourage researchers to include project work in the non-academic sector.
