Marie Sklodowska Curie Individual Fellowships

The Marie Curie Individual Fellowships support experienced researchers undertaking mobility between countries, optionally also to the non-academic sector. Deadline 14 September 2017.

The goal of Individual Fellowships is to enhance the creative and innovative potential of experienced researchers wishing to diversify their individual competence in terms of skill acquisition at multi- or interdisciplinary level through advanced training, international and intersectoral mobility.

Individual Fellowships support the mobility of researchers within and beyond Europe - as well as helping to attract the best foreign researchers to work in Europe.

What is supported?

The grant usually covers two years' salary, a mobility allowance, research costs and overheads for the host institution.

Individual researchers submit proposals for funding in liaison with their planned host organisation.

Proposals are judged on their research quality, the researcher's future career prospects, and the support offered by the host organisation. Fellows can also spend part of the fellowship elsewhere in Europe if this would boost impact, and those restarting their career in Europe benefit from special eligibility conditions.

You will find the call text, submission service and important documents on the Participant Portal.

We are here to help you

Please contact the External Funding Unit at the Faculty of Medicine for help and guidance.
