Call open for Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships
Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships (IF) support researchers with a doctorate or at least four years of experience to advance in their research and to acquire or transfer knowledge, by moving within Europe or coming to Europe. All research fields may be funded.
Researchers can be of any nationality. To apply for the grant, the researcher has to team up with a host institution in an EU member state or Horizon 2020 associated country that is different from their own. Host organisations can be academic or non-academic, and a short secondment period in an additional organisation is also possible.
The grant offers the option to spend between one and two years outside Europe before returning. If the fellowship involves time outside Europe on secondment, a return period to the European host is mandatory. Other secondments are only possible in Europe.
Among other requirements, the proposal has to demonstrate excellent research potential and show significant development possibilities in the researcher's career.
The call H2020-MSCA-IF-2014 is open until 11 September 2014 at 17.00 Brussels time. Applicants have to submit their proposal electronically, following the link on the Participant Portal.
