This webinar will introduce the MSCA “Staff Exchanges” (MSCA-SE) which promotes international and cross-sector collaboration through exchanging research and innovation staff.

The European Commission’s Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) offers funding for short-term international and inter-sectoral exchanges of staff members involved in research and innovation activities of participating organisations.

The aim of this action is to develop sustainable collaborative projects between different organisations from the academic and non-academic sectors (in particular SMEs), based in Europe and beyond. Exchanged staff benefit from new knowledge, skills and career development perspectives, while participating organisations increase their research and innovation capacities.

Join this webinar on 4 October at 9am CET (GMT+7) to find out how you can enhance your organisation's innovation capacity through interdisciplinary and intersectoral collaboration with European and global partners!

This webinar will provide the following information:

  • What are the MSCA Staff Exchanges?
  • Who can apply for MSCA Staff Exchanges?
  • What is funded?
  • How does it work?
  • When is the next call for propoals?
