Marie Curie Host Fellowships for the Transfer of Knowledge

Universities, research institutions or enterprises in the EU Member or Associated States can apply to the Commission for funding to reinforce or develop new research competencies through the recruitment of experienced researchers.

There are two types of Marie Curie Host Fellowships for the Transfer of Knowledge on offer:

  • The Marie Curie Development Scheme: In this case, experienced researchers are recruited to transfer knowledge to develop the research potential of institutions. Organisations in less-favoured regions in the EU and the candidate countries will be given priority.
  • The Marie Curie Industry-Academia Strategic Partnership: This scheme supports the development of long-lasting collaborations between industry and academia via the exchange of researchers.

Marie Curie Host Fellowships for the Transfer of Knowledge The research institution, university or enterprise applies to the European Commission for funding . The Commission selects the most suitable proposals and signs a contract with each of the successful hosts. The host is then free to select the fellows directly, following the specific guidelines set by the Commission. Fellowships last between two months and two years and are open to experienced researchers of all nationalities and ages. Fellows will be required to comply with the mobility criteria.

  • The last call for proposals has been published on 20 July 2005. It is an open call with closure date on 25 January 2006 at 17.00 (Brussels local time).
  • A detailed explanation of Marie Curie Transfer of Knowledge is provided in the following Handbook (PDF document - 716 Kb)
