Topic: Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships (IF-GF) MSCA-IF-2014-GF

Proposals for Global Fellowships involve a single host organisation (future beneficiary) established in a MS or AC. The project proposals are submitted by this host organisation, which is represented by the supervisor, in liaison with the researcher.

Global Fellowships are composed of an outgoing phase during which the researcher spends 1 to 2 years on secondment to a partner organisation in a Third Country, plus a mandatory 12-month return period to a host organisation (the beneficiary) located in a Member State or Associated Country.

For Global Fellowships the applicants can submit their proposals as GF to one of the 8 main evaluation panels [1]
