With this proposal the FWF applies for COFUND of the Erwin Schrödinger Programm the largest Outgoing-Program in Austria for basic research at postdoc level open to all disciplines and destinations. According to the objectives of the COFUND-action the programm aims to support researchers to work abroad at leading research institutions and on leading research programmes to open up new areas of knowledge, new scientific approaches, methods and techniques. In this way it helps the fellows broadening and deepening their competence and establishing long lasting international cooperations. The very high impact on career development of the Schrödinger fellows has been shown in the program evaluation. By improving the program with the possibilty to apply also for a reintegration-phase, the FWF wants to facilitate the critical return phase for the fellows and on a long turn counter the brain drain from Austria and consequently from the ERA.
