Topic Description
Scope:

Proposals for European 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.

For European Fellowships the applicants can submit their proposals as Standard EF to one of the 8 main evaluation panels[1] or to one of the 2 multidisciplinary panels: Career Restart Panel (CAR) and Reintegration Panel (RI). The CAR panel provides financial support to individual researchers who want to resume research in Europe after a career break, while the RI panel is dedicated to researchers who want to return to Europe to reintegrate in a longer term research position.
