Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Networks (ITN) – collaborative projects lead by a coordinating institution to train creative, entrepreneurial and innovative researchers through initial and doctoral training of early-stage researchers. Projects typically involve a partnership (consortium) of universities, research institutions, businesses, SMEs and other organisations from across Europe (and beyond) who deliver a training programme (including secondment experiences) within a collaborative research programme. The two types of ITN relevant to Oxford are the European Training Network (ETN) requiring a minimum of at least three institutions in at least three European countries, and the European Industrial Doctorate (EID) requiring a minimum of one University and one non-academic partner from different European countries.

Full details are available on the call information page.
