The scheme aims at co-financing high-quality fellowship or doctoral programmes with transnational mobility. The EU contribution for the co-funding of regional, national and international programmes shall be used exclusively as contribution to the management of the programme and to the living allowance of the researchers. The collaboration is with a wider set of partners, including from the non-academic sector which may provide hosting or secondment opportunities or training in research or transferable skills.
What is funded
The fellowship covers a researcher unit cost (amount depending on the researcher - early stage or experienced), and an institutional unit cost.
The length of the duration of the projects is maximum 5 years - the researchers are recruited for minimum 3 months
Participants submit multi-annual proposals for new or existing doctoral programmes or fellowship programmes that may be run at regional, national or international level. The evaluation is organised in two different panels: A) Doctoral programmes (COFUND - DP) and B) Fellowship programmes (CO-FUND - FP). Doctoral programmes address the development and broadening of the research competencies of early-stage researchers. Fellowship programmes fund individual research training and career development fellowships for experienced researchers.
The responsibility for the funding offers published on this website, including the funding description, lies entirely with the publishing institutions. The application is handled uniquely by the employer, who is also fully responsible for the recruitment and selection processes.
