On April 12, 2018 the European Commission launched new calls for proposals in the framework of Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA).

The MSCA is open to all domains of research and innovation addressed under the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union. These are chosen freely by the applicants in a fully bottom-up manner. The MSCA foster innovation, research-business cooperation and include a strong international component. They are based on the principle of mobility, and researchers can receive funding on the condition that they move from one country to another to acquire new knowledge and develop their research career.

Experienced researchers from across the world can now apply for funding.

The goal of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships 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.

Individual Fellowships provide opportunities to researchers of any nationality to acquire and transfer new knowledge and to work on research and innovation in Europe (EU Member States and Horizon 2020 Associated Countries) and beyond. The scheme particularly supports the return and (re)integration of European researchers from outside Europe and those who have previously worked here, as well as researchers displaced by conflict outside the EU and Horizon 2020 Associated Countries. It also promotes the career restart of individual researchers who show great potential.

Deadline: September 12, 2018, 17.00 (Brussels time).
