MSCA Doctoral Networks 2024 (HORIZON-MSCA-2024-DN-01)

ID 98 2024-05-29 / 2024-11-27


Expected Outcome:

Project results are expected to contribute to the following outcomes:

For supported doctoral candidates

  • New research and transferable skills and competences, leading to improved employability and career prospects within and outside academia;
  • New knowledge allowing the conversion of ideas into products and services, where relevant;
  • Enhanced networking and communication capacities with scientific peers, as well as with the general public that will increase and broaden the research and innovation impact.

For participating organisations

  • Improved quality, relevance and sustainability of doctoral training programmes and supervision arrangements;
  • Enhanced cooperation and transfer of knowledge between sectors and disciplines;
  • Increased integration of training and research activities between participating organisations;
  • Boosted R&I capacity;
  • Increased internationalisation and attractiveness;
  • Regular feedback of research results into teaching and education at participating organisations.


MSCA Doctoral Networks will implement doctoral programmes, by partnerships of universities, research institutions and research infrastructures, businesses including SMEs, and other socio-economic actors from different countries across Europe and beyond. MSCA Doctoral Networks are indeed open to the participation of organisations from third countries, in view of fostering strategic international partnerships for the training and exchange of researchers.

These doctoral programmes will respond to well-identified needs in various R&I areas, expose the researchers to the academic and non-academic sectors, and offer training in research-related, as well as transferable skills and competences relevant for innovation and long-term employability (e.g. entrepreneurship, commercialisation of results, Intellectual Property Rights, communication). Proposals for doctoral networks can reflect existing or planned research partnerships among the participating organisations.

The selection procedure for doctoral candidates must be open, transparent and merit-based, in line with the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers. The vacancy notice (to be widely advertised internationally, including on the EURAXESS website) must mention if the published rates include all employer and employee's taxes and contributions. If possible, the gross salary (net salary + employee’s taxes and contributions) should be published.

MSCA Doctoral Networks are encouraged to lead to Industrial or Joint Doctorates.
