For first-time applicants, here is a short summary of what the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) Individual Fellowships (IF) Call is about:
This call is open to researchers who have a doctoral degree or at least four years’ full-time research experience by the time of the call deadline.
You have the choice to apply for a European Fellowship if you are moving within the EU or associated countries or if you are interested to come to the EU or an associated country from any other country in the world. Within this strand, two panels are particularly attractive for scientists who want to pick-up their research career after a break (Career Restart Panel) or who had worked outside Europe for a while and would like to return (Reintegration Panel).
Individual Fellowships: opportunities for different career stages
Researchers based in the EU or associated countries can apply for a Global Fellowship for a position outside Europe. As a Global Fellow, you will have to come back for one year to an organisation based in the EU or associated countries.
If you apply for an MSCA European Fellowship with a host institution in a so-called Widening country and the MSCA Individual Fellowship call lacks funding to retain your proposal, it may be reassigned to the Widening Fellowships call in case you opt in for this option.
MSCA IF Fellowships offer favourable employment conditions, including the possibility to work part-time and, for example, work on creating your own start-up or follow advanced studies in parallel.
