This handbook explains the principles of Marie Curie Host Fellowships for Early Stage Research Training (EST) to be funded under the EU's Sixth Framework Programme.
To help develop the European Research Area (ERA), the Commission has launched the Sixth Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development (FP6). This programme will run from 2002 to 2006 and is the financial tool with which the Commission will put research policy into practice and also provide the necessary financial support for scientific and technological development projects.
Within FP6, the Human Resources and Mobility (HRM) activity has a budget of 1.58 billion Euro and consists of a coherent set of actions, based on promoting the mobility of researchers. These will be aimed at the development and transfer of research competencies, the consolidation and widening of researchers' career prospects, and the promotion of excellence in European research.
It is the purpose of this document to explain one of the 11 different actions within the HRM activity: Marie Curie Host Fellowships for Early Stage Research Training (ESTs). The information is based mainly upon the relevant legal texts, in particular, the Work Programme. Text that has been directly extracted from this document is shown in boxes to aid the reader.
