MSCA Doctoral Networks 2022

The Marie Sklodowska-Curie Doctoral Networks 2022 call is open. Deadline: November 15, 2022.


The Doctoral Fellowships fund doctoral programmes implemented by international networks of academic and non-academic institutions to train a new generation of researchers capable of meeting future challenges. The training promoted within the framework of these doctoral programmes should aim to provide researchers with the right combination of scientific and transversal skills and to improve their career opportunities through international, interdisciplinary and intersectoral mobility.

Networks consisting of at least three institutions from three different EU Member States or Associated Countries can apply for funding for the implementation of:

  • Doctoral Networks (DN): aimed at training talented researchers through an innovative, international and interdisciplinary programme
  • Industrial Doctorates (DN-ID): characterised by the involvement of the non-academic sector in the training of doctoral candidates
  • Joint Doctorates (DN-JD): aimed at awarding a joint, double or multiple degree recognised in at least two EU Member States


CIVIS supports those looking for partners for MSCA-DN with a database through which collaborations between CIVIS universities can take place. If you are interested in becoming a partner for MSCA-DN, please fill out this form:
For further information, please watch the info session organised by CIVIS last May.

The financial contribution will cover 100% of the costs (salary of researchers recruited under the doctoral training programme, research and training costs, management costs).

Sapienza assists all researchers submitting a proposal with Sapienza as the host institution through individual consultations, support material ("kit for applicants") and a pre-screening and review service for proposals. For further information, please contact the Researchers Mobility and European Programmes Unit.
