Abstract

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 2003 to 2006 and is the financial tool with which the Commission can put research policy into practice and also provide the necessary financial support for scientific and technological development projects.
Within this programme, the Human Resources and Mobility (HRM) activity has a budget of 1.58 billion Euro and consists of a coherent set of actions that finance training and other career development opportunities for researchers. These are known as Marie Curie actions and aim 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 out of the 11 different actions within the HRM activity, the Marie Curie Chairs (EXC). The information is essentially based upon the relevant legal texts, in particular the "Work Programme." Text that has been directly extracted from the Work Programme is shown in boxes to aid the reader.
