MSCA Individual Fellowships

Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships (IF) support international mobility of experienced researchers between countries in Europe or between a European country and a country outside of Europe. MSC fellows carry out their own research project in collaboration with a host institution, and thus have the chance to boost their career by developing new scientific competences and gaining international and collaborative research experience.

There are two types of Individual Fellowships:

  • European Fellowships: They are held in EU or associated countries and are open to researchers either coming to Europe or moving within Europe for a period of one to two years. This action can help researchers that resume their career after a break or move back to Europe.
  • Global Fellowships: These actions fund secondments outside Europe for researchers based in EU or associated countries for a period of one to two years, plus a mandatory return period of one year.

Candidates should, at the time of the deadline for submission, be in possession of a doctoral degree or have at least four years of full-time equivalent research experience,  and comply with the mobility rule: (for EF - Standard Fellowship and Global Fellowship candidates should have not resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc…) in Italy for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the call deadline. For the EF-Career Restart and Reintegration Panel  researchers  must  not  have  resided  or  carried  out  the  main  activity  (work, studies,  etc.) in  Italy  for  more  than  36  months  in  the  5 years immediately before the call deadline).

Researchers working at the University of Padova can apply for a MSC Global Fellowship, spending 24 months outside Europe and then coming back to the University of Padova.

Researchers from all scientific disciplines can apply.

The grant provides an allowance to cover living, travel and family costs; research costs and overheads of the host organization are also supported.
