Scope of the project
The Innovative Training Networks (ITN) – from the programme Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) – aim to train a new generation of researchers who are able to face current and future challenges. Researchers who convert knowledge and ideas into products and services for economic and social benefit.
An ITN is a consortium of organisations from different countries and sectors. Innovative Training Networks (ITN) drive scientific excellence and innovation. They bring together universities, research institutes and other sectors from across the world to train researchers to doctorate level.

Types of ITNs
There are three types of ITNs:
- ITN-ETN: European Training Networks (ETNs) produce highly skilled researchers and stimulate entrepreneurship, creativity and innovation in Europe.
- ITN-EID: European Industrial Doctorates (EIDs) meet the objectives of ITN by involving the non-academic sector in doctoral training.
- ITN-EJD: European Joint Doctorates (EJDs) promote international, intersectoral and multi/interdisciplinary collaboration, leading to the delivery of joint, double or multiple doctoral degrees.
