Science to society
Example of involvment in support action: CHRESP
Ideas (European Research Council)
Fundamental research for research teams up to 4 years.
Marie Curie Fellowships
Initial Training Networks
Host driven actions (the network applies to the EU and the researcher to the network), networks for early stage researchers (up to 4 years in research after obtaining the diploma) and a few experienced researchers. A few number of fellowships are available for non-Europeans. Duration 3-36 months (24 for ER).
Marie Curie Intra-European Fellowships
Individual driven fellowships (the researcher with a host institution applies directly to the EC), for experienced researchers (more than 4 years after obtaining the diploma; in case of more than 10 years the fellowship increases). A researcher who worked at least 5 years in the EU or associated country goes to a host institution in another similar country. There are panels (ex. engineering, socio-economic sciences and humanities etc.) Duration 12-14 months.
Call usually in March, submission usually mid-August.
80% prefinancing, 20% after the report.
Example of own project: CA'REDIVIVUS
Marie Curie Incoming Fellowships
Same as above, but for researchers from outside Europe coming to Europe.
Marie Curie Outgoing Fellowships
Same as above, for European researchers going outside Europe. The stay outside Europe should be 12-24 months long, and the stay back in Europe half as long.
Career Integration Grants
