Calls for proposals - Marie Curie - International Research Staff Exchange Scheme FP7-PEOPLE-2013-IRSES Closed!


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.


The participants are expected to propose a multiannual joint programme as the common basis for their collaboration. This may include joint research and training activities or joint workshops and seminars, as well as other networking activities. The activities should be designed to exploit complementary expertise of the participants and to create synergies between them.
