Hungarian support programme for improving the transnational mobility of researchers

Objective

In 2008 the two main funding bodies for applied and basic research in Hungary, the National Office for Research and Technology (NKTH) and the Hungarian Scientific Research Fund (OTKA) Office have developed a complex programme for supporting researchers’ career-development through their international mobility, which is proposed for the FP7 COFUND programme. The programme covers the following 3 activity areas: A./ Outgoing mobility scheme: The scheme is open for those Hungarian experienced researchers, who would like to enlarge their specialised knowledge through the execution of research projects at outstanding international research sites. In the frame of the support scheme maximum 2 years of basic or applied research can be funded. Part of the funded period may be spent reintegrated to the Hungarian host institute. B./ Incoming mobility scheme: The scheme is open for those non-Hungarian experienced researchers, who are nationals of an EU Member State, Associated county or a Third country, who would like to expand their specialised knowledge through the execution of research projects at outstanding Hungarian research sites. In the frame of the support scheme, maximum 2 years of basic or applied research can be funded. C./ Reintegration scheme: The scheme is open for those experienced researchers, who aim to form research units in Hungary, who are nationals of an EU Member State or an Associated country and who lived for at least 36 months in a Third country prior to the submission of the proposal. In the frame of the support scheme, maximum 2 -3 years of basic or applied research can be funded, which helps the researchers to found the basis of a long-term research work at the host institute.
