EU Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships:

Individual Fellowships support the mobility of researchers within and beyond Europe – as well as helping to attract the best foreign researchers to work in the EU. Postdoctoral researchers of any nationality can enhance their qualifications and diversify their competences by conducting a research project at one or several host institutions in/beyond Europe:

  • European Fellowship (EF): Mobility within/to Europe
  • Global Fellowship (GF): Mobility outside of Europe with an obligatory 12-month return phase to Europe
