Turkish Scientific and Technological Research Council (TÜBİTAK) introduces a new European Commission Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Cofund program “Co-Funded Brain Circulation2 Scheme (CoCirculation2)”.

CoCirculation2 is a 5-year project aiming to invite experienced researchers to both academic and non-academic research performing organizations located in Turkey. Within this context, 100 experienced researchers of any nationality, including countries in ASEAN,  who wish to engage in incoming mobility and to implement a research project in Turkey will be able to apply for a fellowship. 4 calls for proposals will be published, fellowships for calls 1 – 3 will last 24 months, fellowships for call 4 will last 12 months.

In line with the spirit of the H2020 MSCA, the ERs will have full freedom in the choice of their research topic and of their mentor. This individual-driven and bottom-up approach guarantees that they can prepare a proposal that follows their research interests and their training needs. Applicants can choose as their main host organisation any academic or non-academic research institute in Turkey with a high international research reputation. To facilitate this process, TÜBİTAK has already received Letters of Commitment from 51 Partner Organisations that have expressed their wish and commitment to host CoCirculation2 fellows.

The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TÜBİTAK) announces the Programme CO-FUNDED 2 Brain Circulation Scheme (Co-Circulation Scheme). The main objective of the proposal is to attract research talent to Turkish Research Landscape which is an integral part of the European Research Area. The Programme is a Co-Funding Scheme and supported by TÜBİTAK and The Marie Curie Action COFUND, of the Horizon 2020 Framework Programme of the European Commission.
