H2020 MSCA ITN Projects at KI

The Innovative Training Networks (ITN) are training projects within the Marie Sklodowska Curie Actions (MSCA). The projects are consortium based with both academic and non-academic international organisations, which recruit early stage researchers/students for advanced training, mostly for PhD.

Horizon 2020 (H2020) was the eighth framework program and ran between 2014-2020. For years 2021 -2027 the ninth framework program is named Horizon Europe (HE).
