EU Funding Opportunity - MSCA Open Call 2015

European Commission has ​announced the Open call for proposal for the Individual Fellowship Scheme of Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) under Horizon 2020 Programme.


This action is meant to support individual researchers from anywhere in the world. Mobility across borders is a must and Cross-sectoral mobility is also encouraged.

Experienced researchers (Researchers with doctoral degree or at least four years’ full-time research experience by the time of the call deadline) can apply based on an application​ ​prepared​ jointly by the researcher and host organisation in the academic or non-academic sectors.


All Individual Fellowships are expected to strengthen the contact network of both the researcher and the host organisation(s), to support the development of researcher’s career and to enhance and maximize their contribution to the knowledge-based economy and society. This grant supports an allowance to cover living, travel and family costs of the Fellow and also the research costs and overheads of the host organisation(s) (usually a university, research center or a company in Europe).

There are two types of Individual Fellowships:

European Fellowships

·         Held in the EU or Associated Countries.

·         The researcher must move or have moved from any country to the MS or AC where the beneficiary is located.


Global Fellowships

·         The Global Fellowships start with a significant period spent at a partner organisation located outside of Europe and conclude with a mandatory return phase in Europe.

·         There is a mandatory one-year return period to a host organisation located in a Member State or Associated Country.

European and Global Fellowships can also include a secondment period of up to 3 or 6 months in another organisation in Europe, where this would boost the impact of the fellowship.
