Every year, Université Paris-Saclay organizes an information session dedicated to ITN program

Université Paris-Saclay* organized on Tuesday 5th of November a training session dedicated to the ITN program (Innovative Training Networks H2020 program). The ITN program aims to strengthen the excellence and to stucture the initial and doctorate training of researchers at the beggining of the carreer. These ITN must offer in addition to a traditional academic setting, transferable skills that open up career opportunities in the academic and non-academic world. The action supports joint training research and / or doctoral programs implemented by partnerships of universities, research institutions, research infrastructures, businesses, SMEs and other socio-economic actors from different countries across Europe and beyond.

This session is intended for the researchers willing to submit an application at the next call (deadline on 14 January 2020), but also for everyone wishing to be informed on this European funding program.

The training was hosted by Eugénia SHADLOVA, the coordinator of the MSCA National Contact Point, and the members of Université Paris-Saclay european network. They presented the work program and made a detailed analysis of the issues to be addressed when drafting an ITN project.

The researchers who participated in this event were very interested in the ITN program, which is why the exchanges between the speakers and the audience were rich, plentiful and wide-ranging.

The second part of this workshop dedicated to ITN program will take place on 21st of November 2019. On this occasion, the researchers of Université Paris-Saclay engaged as coordinator in the preparation of application files will be offered an individual meeting with an experts’ jury to present their project.
