Marie Curie Fellowships
Individual Fellowships (IF) provide support for Experienced Researchers undertaking mobility between countries. IF provides opportunities to acquire and transfer new knowledge and to work on research in a European context (EU Member States [MS] and Associated Countries[AC]) or outside Europe. The scheme particularly supports the return and reintegration of researchers from outside Europe who have previously worked here. It also develops or helps to restart the careers of individual researchers that show great potential, considering their experience.
All Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions have a bottom-up approach, i.e. research fields are chosen freely by the applicants.
I. European Fellowships (EFs) -
Duration: 12-24 months
Standard European Fellowships: Fellowships which do not involve Career Restart or Reintegration. The researcher must move or have moved (transnational mobility) from any country to the MS or AC where the beneficiary is located.
Career Restart Panel (CAR): A multidisciplinary panel of the EFs which provides financial support to individual researchers who want to resume research in Europe after a career break (e.g. after parental leave, working outside research etc.). The researcher must move or have moved (transnational mobility) from any country to the MS or AC where the beneficiary is located.
Reintegration Panel (RI): Multidisciplinary panel of the European Fellowships dedicated to researchers who want to return and reintegrate in a longer term research position in Europe. The researcher must move or have moved (transnational mobility) from a Third Country[TC] to the MS or AC where the beneficiary is located.
II. Global Fellowships (GFs) -
Duration: 24-36 months
Global Fellowships are composed of an outgoing phase during which the researcher undertakes a secondment to a partner organization in a Third Country (TC) for a period of 12-24 months, and a mandatory 12-month return period to a host organization (the beneficiary) located in a Member State (MS) or Associated Country (AC). The researcher must move or have moved (transnational mobility) from a TC to the MS or AC where the beneficiary is located.
Please Note: The visiting researcher must dedicate 100% of his/her time to the research project and will not be able to work on other research projects.
