Research Training Networks

Research Training Networks

The information presented here refers mainly to Research Training Networks funded through the Fifth Framework Improving Human Potential Programme (1998-2002) and lasting until 2006. The activity, with new developments, also exists in the Sixth Framework Programme (2002-2006) as part of the " Marie-Curie Actions ". Details of any Call for Proposals for Marie-Curie Research Training Networks and other Marie-Curie Actions may be found here .

The primary objective of Research Training Networks is to promote training-through-research, especially of young researchers , both pre- and post-doctoral level, within the frame of high quality international collaborative research projects, including those in emerging fields of research. Networks from a wide range of disciplines are supported and normally consist of at least five participants established in at least three Member or Associated states . Funding is provided primarily for the appointment of young researchers with modest support for networking, overheads and certain direct costs.

More detailed information, both for those interested in the activity and for those who are a member of a network, may be found below. There are currently vacancies for interested young researchers.
