LERU publishes statement on MSCA in Horizon Europe
LERU, the League of European Research Universities, has recently published a note on “Marie Skłodowska Curie Actions in Horizon Europe”. The note, which was released on 18 July 2019, responds to some changes that are being proposed or considered by the European Commission for MSCA in Horizon Europe and complements the chapter on MSCA in the LERU FP9 paper (June 2017). It has been prepared on the basis of discussions in, and written feedback of the LERU European Research Project Managers Policy Group.
The paper states that LERU and the LERU member universities are very supportive of MSCA and believe it is one of the cornerstones of the Framework Programme. Amongst other issues, LERU calls for a considerable increase of funding for MSCA in Horizon Europe compared to the EC proposal.
