The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships (IF) actions are individual research fellowships which aim to support research training and career development of research doctorate researchers or with four years of research experience.
There are two types of individual scholarships:
- European Fellowships: thanks to this type of funding, researchers will be able to broaden their horizons by carrying out the research project at a European institution (based in a member state or associated with the Horizon 2020 program) for a period of 12-24 months, with the goal of acquiring new skills or working in new sectors. The scholarships are open to researchers moving within Europe or arriving in Europe, and precisely to a country where they have not been for more than 12 months in the last 3 years.
- Global Fellowships: these funds are aimed in particular at researchers who aim to acquire new knowledge and skills through a research project that includes a period of 12 to 24 months at a non-European institution of excellence plus a return period of 12 months in Europe, to transfer and consolidate the skills acquired.
The researcher must not have been the first phase of the project for more than 12 months in the last 3 years in the extra-European country of the host institution.Possibility of tenure-track positions for researchers who have been awarded a three-year Global Fellowship if you choose UNIBS as host institution for your return period.
