Guidelines for Marie Curie  Innovative Training Networks applications 

(H2020 MSCA-ITN)

Collaborate with Elvesys, an innovative microfluidic SME, in the frame of MSCA-ITN to benefit from our expertise in microfluidic instrumentation, flow management, but also entrepreneurship and market-driven research!

Who can be beneficiary of an ITN?

  • Institutions from academic or non academic sector
  • Institutions from EU members countries or associated countries
  • Beneficiaries have to recruit at least one young researcher for 3 to 36 months
  • Beneficiaries provide scientific and/or non scientific training to the young researchers

Who are the young researchers (ESRs)?

  • From any countries
  • With less than 4 years of full time research since the obtention of their master degree (or equivalent)
  • With less than 12 months in the host country in the past 36 months




ETN (European Training Networks)

  • Minimum 3 beneficiaries from 3 EU countries or associated countries
  • Participation of the non-academic sector strongly advised
  • Enrollment in PhD programme not mandatory

EID (European Industrial Doctorates)

  • Minimum 2 beneficiairies – 1 academic, one non-academic
  • Minimum 2 EU countries or associated countries
  • Young researchers have to get a PhD at the end of the project
  • Mandatory cosupervision of the PhD (one supervisor from the academic sector, the other from the non academic sector)
  • Minimum 50% of the time in the non-academic sector

EJD (European Joint Doctorates)

  • Minimum 3 beneficiaries able to deliver a PhD diploma
  • Minimum 3 EU countries or associated countries
  • Young researchers have to get a PhD degree from at least 2 universities from the consortium at the end of the project


  • Call opens: 12th September 2019
  • Submission deadline: 14th January 2020
  • Evaluation: May 2020
  • Project starts: July 2020 – April 2021



The financial support of H2020 MSCA-ITN by the EU takes into account a correction coefficient for the host country. It covers:

  • Living, mobility and family allowances for the researcher (gross salary 3,150€)
  • Research, training and networking costs for the institution (1,800€/month)
  • Management and indirect costs (1,200€/month)



You need an innovative SME in microfluidics for your H2020 consortium?

The ELVESYS Microfluidics innovation center brings its expertise to more than 30 European research projects.

We would be glad to join your consortium to share our scientific expertise in microfluidic instrumentation and flow management, but also to train young researchers to entrepreneurship, innovation, and market driven research, to enhance their career perspectives both in academia and industry.
