Marie Curie Incoming International Fellowships (IIF), Handbook, FP6-2002-MOBILITY-7

Funded under: FP6-MOBILITY

Abstract

The specific objectives of the Marie Curie Incoming International Fellowships action are:
These [Fellowships] will aim at attracting top-class researchers from third countries to work and undertake research training in Europe, with the view to developing mutually beneficial research co-operation between Europe and third countries. In the case of emerging and transition economies and developing countries, the scheme may include provision to assist fellows to return to their country of origin.
This action will reinforce the scientific excellence of the Member States and the Associated States thanks to the application of the knowledge thus transferred during this period of mobility and will also constitute a springboard for the future development of relations between the Member States or Associated States and the third countries.
And the scheme foresees the following:
In the case of a re-integration the proposal will comprise on submission a description of a possible return/reintegration phase in an identified re-integration host organisation. A contract is issued with the re-integration host organisation, which will commit itself to assure an effective and lasting re-integration (attested by all adequate legal means) of the researcher for at least a period of 2 years.
