Q: Concerning the "International Reintegration Grant" could you clarify the meaning of "researchers should not be employed in research in a Member State or Associated country"?
A: At the relevant deadline for submission of proposals a researcher must not be employed in research in a Member State or Associated Country. Please note that only employment/work in research is taken into consideration. Therefore, at the relevant deadline the researcher must not have started to work in research under any form of recruitment (i.e. an employment contract but also a fellowship or any other type of employment).

It should be stressed that the non-eligibility only applies if the employment contract has already entered into force. A signed contract with a starting date after the IRG deadline does not make the researcher ineligible; however, he/she is not eligible if the contract has entered into force but he/she has not started to work due to other circumstances (holidays, illness).
