Mobility rules:

At the time of the relevant deadline for submission of proposals (IF), or recruitment by the host organisation (ITN), researchers shall not have resided or carried out their main activity (work , studies, etc) in the country of their host organisation for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the reference date. Compulsory national service and/or short stays such as holidays are not taken into account.

In the Career Restart Panel and the Reintegration Panel in IF, researchers shall not have resided or carried out their main activity in the country of their host organisation for more than 3 years in the 5 years immediately prior to the relevant deadline for submission of proposals.

The Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions ensure excellent and innovative research training as well as attractive career and knowledge-exchange opportunities through cross-border and cross-sector mobility of researchers to best prepare them to face current and future societal challenges. The Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions are open to all domains of research and innovation addressed under the Treaty, from basic research up to market take-up and innovation services.

Expected impact:

  • Individual Fellowships are expected to add significantly to the development of the best and most promising researchers active in Europe, in order to enhance and maximise their contribution to the knowledge-based economy and society.
  • The action will also strengthen the contact network of both the researcher and the host organisation.
  • The fellowship will contribute to release the full potential of researchers and to catalyse significant development in their careers in both the academic and non-academic sectors.
