Q: In order to be eligible, researchers may not have been working in the country of the host institution for more than 12 months out of the previous three years. But what is the reference date - the day of the relevant deadline or the project start date?
A: For the individual-driven Marie Curie actions (Intra-European Fellowships) the reference date is the relevant deadline for submission of proposals. If at the deadline you have been in the country of your host organisation a few days less than a year you would still be eligible. What happens between the deadline and the signature of the Marie Curie contract does not count.
