Find a Cofunded Call under the People Programme

COFUND is a Marie Curie Action under the FP7 People Programme that co-funds regional, national and international fellowship programmes for research training and career development.

Fellowship programmes supported by COFUND are labelled "co-funded by Marie Curie Actions". They are selected through transparent and independent peer review after evaluating them (among others) on fairness and transparency of the recruitment process and on working and employment conditions that they provide for researchers.

Researchers who receive a grant from co-funded fellowship programmes are considered as Marie Curie Fellows. To be eligible, researchers have to demonstrate transnational mobility (incoming, outgoing or re-integration) and must have at least 4 years of research experience or be holders of a doctorate. Detailed information of working conditions and financial contribution of each fellowship programme can be found in the table below under "Programme Summary".

Funding organisations execute co-funded fellowship programmes independently from the European Commission and the Research Executive Agency. Typical funding organisations can be ministries, research academies or agencies, international organisations or other bodies with a public mission, including universities or research organisations.

More information on COFUND and all related documents can be found on the CORDIS and Marie Curie Actions websites. You may also consult the People work programme.

EURAXESS Jobs<> Information on planned calls for proposals can be found in the list of fellowship programmes below and in the Fellowship Portal on the EURAXESS Jobs web site where you can also find RSS for active fellowship programmes.
