  • completed an PhD 
  • have a maximum of 8 years full-time equivalent experience in research at the call deadline
  • have not resided or carried out their main activity in the country of the host institution for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the call deadline

Type and extent of funding

Fellowship of 5,150 euros per month gross (depending on the host country), plus 600 euros mobility allowance and (if applicable) 660 euros family allowance. Host institutions receive funds for research, training, networking, management and indirect costs.
