The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) are part of the European research & innovation funding programme 'Horizon 2020'.
The objective of the MSCA is to support the career development and training of researchers.
Among the different MSCA, the Individual Fellowships support the international mobility of researchers within and beyond Europe.
These fellowships are open to European and Indian researchers, based in Europe or in India, who, at the time of the relevant deadline for submission of proposals (see below), are in possession of a doctoral degree or have at least four years of full-time equivalent research experience.
The grant usually covers two years' salary, a mobility allowance, research costs and overheads for the host institution. Individual researchers submit proposals for funding in liaison with their planned host organisation.
Proposals are judged on their research quality, the researcher's future career prospects, and the support offered by the host organisation.
Fellowships are either European Fellowships or Global Fellowships:
- European Fellowships are held in Europe (i.e. EU Member States and Countries Associated to Horizon 2020) and are open to researchers currently within or outside Europe.
- Global Fellowships are based on a secondment to a non-EU or associated country (as defined above) and a mandatory 12 months return period to a European host.
Deadline: 11 September
