Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships Call is Now Open for Applications (Call ID: H2020-MSCA-IF-2020)
Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships (Call ID: H2020-MSCA-IF-2020) opened for applications on April 8, 2020. The goal of the 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 researchers of any nationality to acquire and transfer new knowledge and to work on research and innovation in Europe (EU Member States and Horizon 2020 Associated Countries) and beyond. The scheme particularly supports the return and (re)integration of European researchers from outside Europe and those who have previously worked here, as well as researchers displaced by conflict outside the EU and Horizon 2020 Associated Countries. It also promotes the career restart of individual researchers who show great potential.
