European Carrier integration grants

Support for training and career development of researchers
Deadline: 6th Semptember 2011

This action addresses experienced researcher  (in possession of a doctoral degree (PhD) or have at least four years research experience)
The application is made jointly by a researcher and a host organisation.
Applicant host organisations must be active in research and located in a Member State or associated country.

Mobility Conditions
At the relevant deadline for submission of proposals, the researcher must not have resided or carried out his/her main activity (work, studies, etc) in the country of his/her host organisation for more than 12 months in the three years immediately prior to this deadline.
Projects must be for a period of between 24 and 48 months (full-time equivalent).
The action is intended to improve considerably the prospects for the permanent integration of researchers who are taking up, for the first time, a stable post in mEurope. This action should also allow the transfer of knowledge they have acquired prior to the CIG, as well as to the development of lasting cooperation with the research and/or industrial environment of the country from which they have moved. This action has a particular emphasis on countering European 'brain drain' to other third countries.
