Campus Iberus, the Campus of International Excellence of the Ebro valley, is a strategic partnership between four high-profile Spanish universities. The EU-funded IberusExperience project will host secondments and deliver training, networking events and other actions to increase the career opportunities for 11 experienced researchers from across the globe. The project will help researchers develop individual and innovative research projects for 36 months in any of the five domains of specialisation of Campus Iberus: agro-food nutrition; health technologies; energy, environment and sustainability; social and territorial developments; and circular bioeconomy. IberusExperience brings together University of Zaragoza, Public University of Navarre, University of Lleida and University of La Rioja, with academic and non-academic partners from 26 countries.


The proposed MSCA COFUND FP “IberusExperience - International Fellowship Programme for Talent Attraction to the Campus of International Excellence Campus Iberus” is promoted by Campus Iberus, a strategic partnership which brings together four high-profile research universities from four different regions along the Ebro valley in northeastern Spain: Universidad de Zaragoza, Universidad Pública de Navarra, Universitat de Lleida and Universidad de la Rioja. IberusExperience tables a competitive and attractive research environment of inter-connected regions and universities, bringing together 4 recruiting universities and a total of 88 academic and non-academic partner organisations from 26 countries committed to host secondments and/or to offer trainings, networking events and others actions to enhance the career opportunities of the researchers.
IberusExperience will offer 11 positions for worldwide excellent Experienced Researchers (ER) who are willing to develop individual and free-choice innovative research projects for a period of 36 months in any of the five areas of specialisation of Campus Iberus: 1) Agro-food & Nutrition; 2) Health Technologies; 3) Energy, Environment & Sustainability; 4) Social & Territorial Development; 5) Circular Bio-Economy.
The IberusExperience Programme is planned to start on July 2021 and last for 60 months. It involves one call for applicants and the evaluation of the research proposals by international independent experts. The recruitment of the 11 talented researchers is expected to be achieved before M18. The programme is not just aimed at talent attraction but consolidation and retention. Researchers will have the opportunity to be extensively trained in research and transferable skills and consolidate their professional careers at the regions. Anchoring these highly skilled professionals will definitely boost the international dimension and competitiveness of Campus Iberus and surrounding R&I ecosystem.
