EU Publication: Synergies between the Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions and the European Institute of Innovation and Technology

Since 1996, the Marie Skodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) have become the Union’s reference programme for doctoral education and postdoctoral training. The European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) was established in 2008 in order to contribute to sustainable economic growth and competitiveness by reinforcing the innovation capacity of the European Union and its Member States. In order to allow interested stakeholders to explore the full potential of the opportunities offered under the MSCA and under the EIT programme, this guide provides an overview of the different types of actions under the respective programmes and gives examples of how stakeholders involved in one programme could benefit from actions under the other.

This guide can notably be used by organisations or individuals involved in one of the two programmes to consider how their project could 1) benefit from activities of projects and innovation communities working in the same research and innovation fields, or 2) provide the basis for a spin-off project in the other programme.
