Q: I am a UK citizen and I would like to return to Europe after having spent three years as a post-doc in USA. What Marie Curie fellowships should I apply to?
A: International reintegration grants are open to experienced researchers from the Member States or Associated countries, who at the date of submission as foreseen in the call for proposals have been active in research in a third country for at least 3 years and who will return to a Member State or Associated country.
At the time of the relevant submission deadline they should not have spent more than 12 months in a Member State or Associated country during the previous 3 years (short stays, such as holidays, are not taken into account) and they should not be employed in research in a Member State or Associated country , including in their country of origin.
Another option would be the Marie Curie Intra-European fellowship aimed at experienced researchers from Member States or Associated countries who can provide evidence that they have legally resided and have had their principal activity (work, studies, etc) in a third country for at least three out of the last four years immediately prior to the submission deadline for proposals for this action. For this eligibility criterion they will be considered as eligible to benefit from support under this action in any Member State or Associated country, including in their country of origin.
