In the new Horizon Europe, MSCA Staff Exchanges will be the continuity from Horizon 2020 to get involved organisations from the academic and non-academic sectors (including SMEs) from across the globe.
Support is provided for international, inter-sectoral and interdisciplinary mobility of R&I staff, leading to knowledge transfer between participating organisations.
SCA Staff Exchanges can address three dimensions of mobility, which are:
Exchanges between organisations within EU Member States and Horizon Europe Associated Countries should mainly be inter-sectoral. However, same-sector exchanges are also possible under the condition that they are interdisciplinary. Interdisciplinarity is not required for same-sector exchanges with non-associated Third Countries.
For participating staff members, the project should offer new skills acquisition and career development perspectives.
Participating organisations must ensure that the seconded staff are adequately mentored. The total Budget for the 2021 call is 72.5 EUR million.
