Now the New Year is upon us, the season of grant writing and planning has begun.


Perhaps you, or your University, are currently involved in putting together a European Union Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network (ITN) application. Perhaps you did not know about this programme? Our education service, Charlesworth Knowledge, can help.


These grants fund networks of higher education institutions across Europe and are focussed on training early career researchers (ECRs) and mobility (two of the key themes of European Union funding generally). Networks of insitutions spanning different EU member states receive targeted funding to train new PhD students, young people ready to move, live, and work in different countries. Partner countries, like China and Kazakhstan, can also join and partner with these innovative training networks.


The Charlesworth Group provides the tools to support the ECR in their research career and activities.  We provide both grant writing support, training events, and workshops and can act as your dedicated ECR education node within an EU network. Why not get in touch with us to find out more and receive dedicated grant preparation support and language polishing at competitive rates.


An industry partner will also significantly enhance your chances of funding from these programmes. Our team also has deep experience winning EU funding and so can provide you with templates for key sections of Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions. Why get bogged down in writing grant applications when we are here to help?
