MSCA-NET events for Widening Countries (WC)

To unlock the full potential of the European Research Area, and to allow the EU as a whole to advance together in R&I, countries with low participation rates in FP7 and H2020 projects receive particular support to widen their participation in Horizon Europe. These widening countries are: Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czechia, Estonia, Greece, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia and all Associated Countries with equivalent characteristics in terms of R&I performance (Albania, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Kosovo* , Montenegro, North Macedonia, Serbia, Turkey, Armenia, Georgia, Moldova, Morocco, Tunisia, Ukraine, Faroe Islands) and the Outermost Regions.

More information can be found on the European Commission website.

Meet & Exchange Workshop

MSCA-NET organizes 4 workshops to exchange knowledge, ideas and best practice on MSCA related topics ( 2 online, 2 on site). The first one will take place on the 9th November 2022 in Bologna – Italy.


6 trainings will be organised during the lifetime of the project on MSCA novelties in Horizon Europe. The MSCA-NET project reimburses the participation of MSCA NCP.


As MSCA NCP, you can participate in one of the 10 twinning visits the MSCA-NET project organises during to meet with MSCA NCP mentors. The costs of your participation will be reimbursed.
