Marie-Sklodowska Curie actions(MSCA)-Innovative Training Network (ITN): are a sub-programme of the Horizon 2020 and aim to train a new generation of creative, entrepreunarial and innovative ESRs, able to face current and future challenges and to covert knowledge and ideas into products and services for economic and social benefit.
Beneficiaries: are organisations that are full partners of the network. They contribute directly to the implementation of the research training programme by appointing, supervising, hosting and training researchers.
