People calls for proposals launched
The European Commission's Directorate-General for Research has published three calls for proposals under the 'People' programme of the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7).
Intended to provide support for training and career development of researchers, the calls include:
- Intra-European Fellowships (IEF);
- International Outgoing Fellowships (IOF);
- International Incoming Fellowships (IIF).
The Intra-European Fellowship scheme targets experienced researchers seeking to enhance their individual competence and acquire new skills at an interdisciplinary level.
International Outgoing Fellowships aim to reinforce the international dimension of European researchers by giving them the opportunity to work in a high-level research organisation in a third country.
By contrast, the International Incoming Fellowship scheme is addressed at top-class researchers active in third countries, who would like to work on research projects and share their knowledge with colleagues in Europe. Ultimately, the goal is to develop mutually beneficial research cooperation between Europe and third countries.
The deadline for submitting proposals is 18 August 2009.
