People

The “People” Specific Programme acknowledges that one of the main competitive edges in science and technology is the quantity and quality of its human resources. To support the further development and consolidation of the European Research Area, this Specific Programme’s overall strategic objective is to make Europe more attractive for the best researchers.

The “People” Specific Programme is being implemented through actions under five headings:

  • "Initial training of researchers to improve mostly young researchers" career perspectives in both public and private sectors, by broadening their scientific and generic skills, including those related to technology transfer and entrepreneurship.
  • “Initial training of researchers to improve mostly young researchers“ career perspectives in both public and private sectors, by broadening their scientific and generic skills, including those related to technology transfer and entrepreneurship.
  • “Life-long training” to support experienced researchers in complementing or acquiring new skills and competencies or in enhancing inter/multidisciplinarity and/or intersectoral mobility, in resuming a research career after a break and in (re)integrating into a longer term research position in Europe after a trans-national mobility experience.
  • “Industry-academia pathways and partnerships” to stimulate intersectoral mobility and increase knowledge sharing through joint research partnerships in longer term co-operation programmes between organizations from academia and industry, in particular SMEs and including traditional manufacturing industries.
  • “International dimension”, to contribute to the life-long training and career development of EU-researchers, to attract research talent from outside Europe and to foster mutually beneficial research collaboration with research actors from outside Europe.
  • “Researchers’ Night” is an event bringing together the public at large and researchers. It occurs annually on the fourth Friday of September all over Europe. Its main objective is to reveal scientists and science in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
