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 in possession of a doctoral degree or has at least four years’ full-time equivalent research experience by the time of the call deadline) can apply based on an application prepared jointly by the researcher and the supervisor in the host organisation in an academic or non-academic sector.
All Individual Fellowships are expected to strengthen the contact network of both the researcher and the host organisation, to support the development of researchers’ career and to enhance and maximise their contribution to the knowledge-based economy and society. This grant supports an allowance to cover living, travel and family Allowances for the Fellow – as illustrated in the table hereinafter – and also the research costs and overheads of the host organisation (usually an university, a research center or a company) in an European Country or Associated Country (AC) to Horizon 2020 programme.
There are two types of Individual Fellowships:
The European Fellowship supports the following Panels in addition to the Standard European Fellowship: Career Restart Panel (CAR). Reintegration Panel (RI) and Society Entreprise Panel (SE).
- The Global Fellowships start with a significant period (1 to 2 years) 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 an EU Member State or Associated Country to Horizon 2020.
* In the Global Fellowship, the Fellow should have the European Nationality or be a long term resident (at least 5 years) in an EU Member Sates or Associated Country to H2020.
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.
