High-class researchers from developing countries are welcome to work on projects in Europe. This helps to improve research cooperation between Europe and other parts of the world – to everybody’s benefit. Marie Curie International Incoming Fellowships are specifically designed to encourage these moves.
Eligibility Criteria/ Scholarship Guidelines
Researchers from Third Countries qualify for an IIF. That means countries that are neither a part of the EU Member States nor Associated Countries.
Must have either a doctoral degree or at least 4 years’ full-time equivalent research experience, after obtaining a degree permitting you to embark on a doctorate. But that is the minimum. The more experience you have, the better will be your chances of being accepted for this action.
One’s application for an IIF should be made in collaboration with the organization or institution that would be willing to host you in Europe. Host organizations can be universities, research centers or companies.
IIF funding is offered for a research project which will transfer knowledge into your host organization and building or improving collaborations between Europe and the rest of the world. The research project will also allow you to advance your career. Financial aid is given for 12-24 months (full-time equivalent). Funding allows you to: • Join a European research team that does not have your experience • Establish a collaboration through a research project with your lab or your country • Gain new knowledge in a European lab. One’s IIF may also cover a return phase up to one year. This will be spent back in your country of origin, applying the experience that they have gained. To become eligible for a return phase, one should be from one of the International Cooperation Partner Countries. If one wants a return phase, they should include details of it in your initial application. And you must specify the potential return host organization in your country of origin.
