What is a Marie Curie Action- Initial Training Network (ITN)?
Marie Curie Fellowships are European research grants available to researchers regardless of their nationality and field of research. They are awarded by the European Commission and in addition to very generous fellowships, researchers have the possibility to gain experience abroad and in the private sector.
In particular, Marie Curie Actions are aimed at increasing the transnational mobility of researchers. They provide training and career development for researchers who take jobs abroad at prestigious organisations in both private and public sectors. Read more about Marie Curie Actions.
Initial Training Networks (ITN) offer early-stage researchers the opportunity to improve their research skills, join established research teams and enhance their career prospects. At least three participants join together to propose a coherent programme for an ITN. The participants can be universities, research centres or companies (large or small).
INsecTIME is consortium of laboratories and SMEs spanning seven EU countries, plus Israel. The key to the network is its multidisciplinarity, bringing together scientists from diverse academic fields and the private sector with different skill and competences. Through synergistic interactions young researchers will learn the full-range of cutting-edge technical skills allied to an appreciation of the commercial possibilities of their work.
