Deadline: 14 August 2013 at 17.00.00, Brussels local time
“This action aims to reinforce the international dimension of the career of European researchers by giving them the opportunity to be trained and acquire new knowledge in a high-level organization active in research, established in an Other Third Country (Outgoing phase). Subsequently, these researchers will return with the acquired knowledge and experience to an organisation in a Member State or Associated Country”.
Type of project funded
This action provides financial support to an individual mobility project presented by an experienced researcher in liaison with a host organisation in the Member States or Associated Countries. Experienced researchers applying to this action need to develop a coherent research training project for the total duration of the contract that will enable the experienced researcher to progress in the development of his/her career.
