Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions matchmaking platform launched


The MSCA Matchmaking Platform, that the MSCA-NET project launched in May 2022, brings together research fellows, companies, research supervisors, non-governmental organisations and academic institutions from European countries and beyond. The platform offers one-to-one meetings for future Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) applicants, inspiring networking sessions, informative workshops and more.

An opportunity for networking ahead of project applications

This is a unique opportunity to build new relationships, meet potential cooperation partners and prepare future successful projects during the 2022 MSCA calls period. Through this platform, participants are able to publish their researcher, company or organisation profile to find or offer arrangements to host researchers and attract talent to participate in MSCA calls. The platform is active for a year until May 2023.
