Top-up financing for outgoing MSCA fellows (MSCA-TOPP-UT)

Deadline Announcement
The programme does not contain active announcements


Top-up financing for outgoing MSCA fellows (MSCA-TOPP-UT) is a funding instrument designed to provide more attractive financial conditions for doctoral research fellows awarded funding under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions. The purpose is to encourage more doctoral students to complete part or all of their doctoral education abroad in an MSCA Innovative Training Network (ITN) and to prompt more experienced researchers at the post-doctoral level to conduct a research stay abroad for a specified period in connection with an MSCA Individual Fellowship. This will enable you to enhance your career development, foster professional independence, and lay the foundation for an international network.
