Q: Is the Early-stage researcher candidate eligible if he/she has resided or carried out his/her main duties in the country of the beneficiary prior to appointment? (All Calls)
A: This depends on the duration of the previous activity in the country of the beneficiary and the nature of the beneficiary. At the time of appointment, the researcher may NOT have resided or carried out his/her main activity in the country of the beneficiary for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to his/her appointment, irrespective of the date when (s)he obtained his/her undergraduate degree. Short stays such as holidays are not taken into account. However, these mobility rules do not apply when a researcher is appointed by an International European Interest Organisation, an International Organisation located in any of the Member States or Associated Countries or the JRC. The appointed researcher must not have spent more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the reference deadline for submission of proposals or recruitment by the host organisation, depending on the action, in the same appointing organisation. An “international organisation” means an intergovernmental organisation, other than the European Union, which has legal personality under international public law, as well as any specialised agency set up by such an international organisation; an “international European interest organisation” means an international organisation, the majority of whose members are Member States or Associated countries, and whose principal objective is to promote scientific and technological cooperation in Europe, for example CERN, ESO, ESRF.
