Call for proposals - Career Integration Grants FP7-PEOPLE-2011-CIG Closed!


This action is a successor to the previous Reintegration Grants (RG). Its objective is to reinforce the European Research Area by encouraging researchers to establish themselves in a Member State or in an associated country, for example after a period of mobility.

The action is designed to provide the researchers who have been offered a stable position and who are considering establishing themselves in Europe, with their own research budget, thus contributing to the scientific success of their research career. The action is intended to improve considerably the prospects for the permanent integration of researchers who are taking up, for the first time, a stable post in Europe.


Projects under this action are expected to contribute significantly to the reinforcement of the human research potential in the European Research Area, by helping the integration of mobile researchers into a stable research position, as well as to improve substantially the research conditions of these researchers by allocating them a research budget of their own.

This action consists of financial support for between 24 and 48 months (full time equivalent) for professional career integration projects in a host organisation in a Member State or associated country. The financial support aims at providing to the researcher the best possible conditions for establishing her/him in a stable research career.
