    Further details on the European Commission Marie S. Curie Individual
    Fellowship scheme:


    The goal of 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 acquire and transfer new knowledge and to work on research and innovation in a European context
    (EU Member States and Associated Countries) or outside Europe. The
    scheme particularly supports the return and reintegration of researchers
    from outside Europe who have previously worked here. It also develops or
    helps to restart the careers of individual researchers that show great potential, considering their experience.


    Support is foreseen for individual, trans-national fellowships awarded
    to the best or most promising researchers of any nationality, for
    employment in EU Member States or Associated Countries. It is based on
    an application made jointly by the researcher and the beneficiary in the academic or non-academic sectors.

    Only one proposal per individual researcher will be evaluated.

    Fellowships take form of European Fellowships or Global Fellowships.
    European Fellowships are held in EU Member States or Associated
    Countries and are open to researchers either coming to Europe from any
    country in the world or moving within Europe. The researcher must comply
    with the rules of mobility in the country where the European Fellowship
    is held.
