Eurotalents: a European programme for transnational mobility of experimented researchers managed by CEA

Objective

CEA is convinced that the ability of research institutes to offer attractive working conditions and career opportunities to researchers is a key factor in meeting the challenge of maintaining and boosting Europe’s scientific and economic competitiveness. Thus, thanks to the European Commission cofunding, CEA would like to develop a centralised programme dedicated to researchers’ transnational mobility and based on open merit competition and international peer review. This programme called ‘Eurotalents programme’ will aim at increasing the mobility of scientists and at offering a boost in their career thanks to the access to new research capacities. Eurotalents will open world class laboratories within CEA and abroad to researchers having an excellent scientific experience and wanting to broader their career via a research project in the scientific topic(s) of their choice within CEA well-known domains of expertise: (i) Energy, environment and climate change, (ii) Life sciences and biotechnology, (iii) Nanosciences and nanotechnologies, (iv) Science and technology of high performance computing, (v) High energy physics and physics of the universe. Eurotalents will thus offer fellowships to foreign researchers wanting to work in CEA (Incoming fellowships) or to French scientists aiming at developing their scientific career abroad (Outgoing fellowships). The selected researchers will also benefit from CEA network all over the world and have access to training courses in scientific and non scientific disciplines. Eurotalents will be directly operated by CEA that has already proved its capacity to efficiently manage European projects and national programmes according to strict rules Eurotalents will exploit synergies between UE actions, CEA research facilities and scientific environment, and CEA quality of work. Thus, Eurotalents will contribute to the success of the European Research Area by attracting third country researchers and promoting European mobility.
