The call aims to stimulate regional, national or international programmes to foster excellence in researchers’ training, mobility and career development. This will be achieved by co-funding new or existing programmes to open up to, and provide for, international, intersectoral and interdisciplinary research training as well as transnational and cross-sectoral mobility of researchers at all stages of their career.
Applicants must submit multi-annual proposals for new or existing doctoral programmes or fellowship programmes that may be run at regional, national or international level.
This action is meant for organisations that fund or manage doctoral programmes or fellowship programmes for researchers.
Doctoral programmes (DP) address the development and broadening of the research competencies of early-stage researchers. Fellowship programmes (FP) fund individual research training and career development fellowships for experienced researchers.
Support cannot be awarded to researchers who are already permanently employed at the host institution. Limitations regarding the researchers’ origin and destination should be avoided. Research teams will not be funded.
Participants are required to be legal entities established in a member state or associated country that fund or manage doctoral or fellowship programmes for researchers. International European interest organisations that fund or manage doctoral or fellowship programmes for researchers can also participate.
The total indicative budget for this call in 2015 is €80 million.
The call closes on 1st of October, 2015.
