ARUA-The Guild info session on the MSCA Doctoral Networks call for funding

On 30 August, The Guild of European Research-Intensive Universities and the African Research Universities Alliance (ARUA) organise a virtual info session on the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) Doctoral Networks 2022 call for funding. The event will provide insights from the European Commission and previous grant holders on how to set up a successful application and implement doctoral programmes between European and African universities.

Under Horizon Europe, the MSCA Doctoral Networks scheme funds the development of excellent doctoral training programmes and collaborative research projects worldwide.

The event aims at facilitating research links between the member universities of The Guild and ARUA. It will be particularly relevant for researchers interested in taking part in a MSCA Doctoral Network project with African/European partners and who would like to submit a proposal for the ongoing call (deadline 15 November). The event will also be pertinent for research support officers interested in learning more about the MSCA Doctoral Networks in the context of Europe-Africa university cooperation.

The info session is part of continued initiatives between ARUA and The Guild, two networks of research-intensive universities, as they seek to build on their joint policy work to foster practical collaboration. In this way they seek to be at the forefront in strengthening African-European science collaboration as a key building bloc towards closer AU-EU relations.

The virtual event is by invitation only. If you are from a member university of The Guild or ARUA, and would be interested in taking part, please contact


Watch below the practical tips from Lotte Meinert from Aarhus University, and Bruce Talbot from Stellenbosch University.
