The Marie Sklodowska-Curie actions support researchers at all stages of their careers, irrespective of nationality. Currently, there are three possibilities available:
- European Industrial Doctorates (EID): combine academic research study with work in companies, and other innovative training that enhances employability and career development. Each EID is composed of at least two beneficiaries established in two different Member States or Associated Countries: at least one beneficiary must be entitled to award doctoral degrees and at least one beneficiary must come from the non-academic sector, primarily enterprise.
- European Joint Doctorates (EJD): have the objective of promoting international, intersectoral and multi/inter-disciplinary collaboration in doctoral-level training in Europe. They are composed of at least three beneficiaries established in different Member States or Associated Countries that are entitled to deliver doctoral degrees. Above this minimum, the participation of any other organisation from the same or other countries (worldwide) is possible under the conditions provided by the Horizon 2020 Rules for Participation.
- European Training Networks (ETN): are multi-partner research training networks composed of at least three beneficiaries established in at least three different EU Member States or Associated Countries. Above this minimum, the participation of any other organisations, including from Other Third Countries, is possible under the conditions provided by the Horizon 2020 Rules for Participation.
