Training and mobility of researchers: forthcoming calls for proposals

The aim of the Community's specific RTD programme in the field of the training and mobility of researchers (TMR) (1994-1998) is to promote, through the stimulation of training and mobility of researchers, a quantitative and qualitative increase of human resources within the Community and in the Associated States.

The TMR programme covers all fields of the exact, natural, economic and management sciences, as well as those social and human sciences that contribute to the objectives of the Fourth Framework Programme. In order to encourage the creativity and innovation of researchers in conceiving their projects, there are no pre-established targets or priorities in the fields covered by the TMR programme. Scientific merit and interest for the Community will be the overriding criteria in the evaluation and selection of projects.

Proposals for funding under the TMR programme may be submitted in reply to calls for proposals covering specific areas of the TMR work programme. The dates and areas of forthcoming calls for proposals are as follows:
