Call for expressions of interest for the submission of proposals under the Marie Curie program

The European Public Law Organization (EPLO) is interested in participating as a host organization in the following Marie Curie Actions:

Marie Sklodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships (IF-EF) MSCA-IF-2015-EF

Marie Sklodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships (IF-GF) - MSCA-IF-2015-GF

MSCA IFs take the form of European Fellowships and Global Fellowships. An application must be developed jointly by the researcher and supervisor. The project proposals are submitted by this host organization, which is represented by the supervisor, in liaison with the researcher. The applicants can submit their proposals to one of the 8 main evaluation panels: Chemistry (CHE), Social Sciences and Humanities (SOC), Economic Sciences (ECO), Information Science and Engineering (ENG), Environment and Geosciences (ENV), Life Sciences (LIF), Mathematics (MAT), Physics (PHY).

For European Fellowships the applicants can submit their proposals as Standard EF to one of the 8 main evaluation panels [1] or to one of the 2 multidisciplinary panels: Career Restart Panel (CAR) and Reintegration Panel (RI). The CAR panel provides financial support to individual researchers who want to resume research in Europe after a career break, while the RI panel is dedicated to researchers who want to return to Europe to reintegrate in a longer term research position. Global Fellowships GF are composed of an outgoing phase during which the researcher spends 1 to 2 years on secondment to a partner organization in a Third Country, plus a mandatory 12-month return period to a host organization (the beneficiary) located in a Member State or Associated Country.
