H2020 Marie Skłodowska Curie Actions – Individual Fellowships

12 April 2018

The Marie Sklodowska Curie Actions (MSCA) - Individual Fellowship 2018 call has just opened today.  

The Marie Sklodowska Curie Actions (MSCA), a European Commission funding programme under Horizon 2020 aim to support the career development and training of researchers in all scientific disciplines through international and intersectoral mobility.

The goal of the MSCA Individual Fellowships is to enhance the creative and innovative potential of experienced researchers, wishing to diversify their individual competence in terms of skill acquisition through advanced training, international and intersectoral mobility.

Individual Fellowships provide opportunities to researchers of any nationality to acquire and transfer new knowledge and to work on research and innovation in Europe (EU Member States and Horizon 2020 Associated Countries) and beyond. The scheme particularly supports the return and (re)integration of European researchers from outside Europe and those who have previously worked here, as well as researchers displaced by conflict outside the EU and Horizon 2020 Associated Countries. It also promotes the career restart of individual researchers who show great potential.

Eligibility Requirements
Experienced researchers only: must have a doctoral degree or at least four years of full-time equivalent research experience
Mobility Rule: must not have resided or carried out their main activity in the country of the host organisation for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately before the call deadline (a Relaxed mobility rule applies to the Reintegration and Career Restart fellowship options).
