Call for Proposals: FP7 Marie Curie Fellowship Program

bridges vol. 29, April 2011 / Noteworthy Information

fp7_logo_small.jpgSeveral calls for proposals have been launched under the PEOPLE program of the FP7 European Research Program. Among them are the calls for the Marie Curie International Incoming Fellowship (IIF) and International Outgoing Fellowship (IOF).

International Incoming Fellowship (IIF)
aims at encouraging top-class researchers from non-European countries, and European researchers who have been active in research in a non-European country (e.g., the United States) for at least three years, to work on research projects in Europe. Researchers eligible to apply are those with at least four years of full-time postgraduate research experience or a doctoral degree.

International Outgoing Fellowship (IOF) offers European researchers the opportunity to be trained and acquire new knowledge in a non-European country high-level research organization, and subsequently to return to an organization in a Member State or Associated Country. Those eligible to apply are researchers from a Member State or Associated Country who possess a doctoral degree or who have at least four years of full-time equivalent research experience after obtaining their academic degree, allowing them to embark on a doctorate (it is, however, expected that researchers will have more experience).
