Companies do not necessarily have the facilities, financial resources or human capital to run their research projects as they would like to. Thanks to the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA), it is now possible for SMEs or other companies to collaborate with academic research organisations, have access to their equipment, and integrate some of their highly skilled researchers within the research projects of the firm.
Transferring cutting-edge science and technology from creative academic groups to SMEs is a key element of successful innovation.

Well-trained, entrepreneurially-minded researchers who can move between academic and other settings are essential to this successful collaboration. This is why the MSCA are promoting Business-Academic collaborations that focus on giving researchers adequate skills and opportunities to contribute to SME and other business growth.

In order to give more practical information on how to get involved in these actions, and to present the latest business opportunities under the new Framework Programme for Research Horizon 2020, the MSCA have launched a promotional campaign across Europe.

The objective of this final event is to discuss the role of the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) in supporting researchers to develop their careers outside academia and in businesses in particular.

In the morning, representatives of EU institutions, MSCA fellows, businesses and universities will discuss intersectoral mobility of researchers and contribute to strengthening the programme.

The afternoon session will provide "Tips and Tricks" on MSCA and in particular on the new "Society and Entreprise" Individual Fellowships panel launched on 12 April 2016.

The event will also feature an exhibition and networking area with businesses, researchers and universities organisations.
