Calls for proposals - International Research Staff Exchange Scheme FP7-PEOPLE-2011-IRSES Closed!

Objectives

The Marie Curie International Research Staff Exchange Scheme is an action that aims to strengthen research partnerships through staff exchanges and networking activities between European research organisations and research organisations from countries with which the European Union has an S&T agreement or is in the process of negotiating one, and countries covered by the European Neighbourhood policy.

Compared to individual Marie Curie Actions, that provide mobility possibilities to individual researchers, this action will provide support to research organisations to establish or reinforce long-term research cooperation through a coordinated joint programme of exchange of researchers for short periods.

Actions

Funding Scheme: Support for training and career development of researchers

A participant in this action is a research organisation that will be a member of the partnership that contributes directly to the implementation of the joint exchange programme, by seconding and/or hosting eligible researchers.

A partnership in this action will be composed of at least two independent participants established in at least two different Member States or associated countries, and one or more research organisations either located in countries with which the European Union has or is in the process of negotiating an S&T agreement, or in countries covered by the European Neighbourhood Policy.
