[CALL] Marie Sklodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships


Deadline: 9 Sep 2020

For young researchers with PhD or at least four years of research experience.

FYI: The Research Service offers a full proposal-check for scientists who want to apply for a research stay at the UNIVIE.

The goal of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships (IF) is to enhance the creative and innovative potential of experienced researchers, wishing to diversify their individual competence in terms of skill acquisition through advanced training, international and intersectoral mobility (between academic and non-academic sector).

Individual Fellowships provide opportunities to researchers of any nationality to acquire and transfer new knowledge and to work on research and innovation in Europe and beyond. Applications are made jointly by the researcher and the beneficiary (the host organisation) in the academic and non-academic sectors.

There are three types of Individual Fellowships:

1. European Fellowships

European Fellowships are held in EU Member States (MS) or Associated Countries (AC) and are open to researchers coming to Europe or moving within Europe to carry out research projects for the duration of 1-2 years.

  • [ST] Standard
  • [RI] Return and reintegration moving from a third country into a longer term research position in Europe
  • [CAR] Support to individuals to resume research in Europe after a career break (CAR), e.g. after parental leave.
  • [SE] Researchers seeking to work on research & innovation projects in an organisation from the non-academic sector

2. Widening Fellowships

Widening Fellowships provide specific support to researchers to undertake their fellowship in one of the so-called widening countries in Europe.

3. Global Fellowships

Global Fellowships are based on a secondment to a third country (i.e. not a MS or AC) for 1-2 years and a mandatory 12 month return period to a European host.
