The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) programme's objective is to strengthen the human potential for research and technology in Europe, with a special attention is given to training researchers.


Individual Fellowships

MSCA Individual Fellowships (IF) encourage young researchers to stay in Europe, and attract researchers from all around the world. They are awarded to researchers with at least four years of experience in research and who wish to add to their knowledge and skills or explore new areas. This enables researchers to broaden their training in a different EU country, or to spend two years training outside of Europe before returning for one year, or—for non-EU researchers—to be invited to Europe in order to share their knowledge.

The current ULB's "Marie-Curie" researchers are:

The MSCA programme also funds the creation of networks dedicated to training young researchers (Innovative Training Networks or ITN), as well as staff exchanges in order to promote inter-sectoral and international collaborations in research and innovation (Research and Innovation Staff Exchange or RISE).

ULB is in charge of coordinating the europeans networks:

ULB takes part in H2020 networks:
RISE : Coclican, CONNECT.

And ULB is partner of MSCA-NIGHT project : SCI-TREK


ULB is the only university in the Wallonia-Brussels Federation that has received EU funding through the COFUND programme. The project receiving the funds, entitled IF@ULB (Individual Fellowships at ULB), will enable the University to hire 63 post-doctoral researchers as part of international exchange programmes.
