(From MSCA draft program or EU Work programme)

Objective:
The goal of Individual Fellowships is to enhance the creative and innovative potential of
experienced researchers wishing to diversify their individual competence in terms of skill
acquisition at multi- or interdisciplinary level through advanced training, international and
intersectoral mobility.
Individual Fellowships provide opportunities to acquire new knowledge and to work on
research in a European context (EU Member States and Associated Countries) or outside
Europe. The scheme particularly supports the return and reintegration of researchers from
outside Europe who have previously worked here. It also develops or helps to restart the
careers of individual researchers that show great potential, considering their experience.

Scope:
Support is foreseen for individual, trans-national fellowships awarded to the best or most
promising researchers for employment in EU Member States or Associated Countries, based
on an application made jointly by the researcher and host organisation in the academic or nonacademic
sectors.
Fellowships are either European Fellowships or Global Fellowships. European Fellowships
are held in EU Member States or Associated Countries and are open to researchers currently
within and outside Europe. The country where the European Fellowship is held is subject to
the rules of mobility. Global Fellowships are based on a secondment to a third country and a
mandatory 12 month return period to a European host. The country where the Global
Fellowship secondment takes place is subject to the rules of mobility, whereas the return
phase is not.
Return and reintegration of researchers into a longer term research position in Europe,
including in their country of origin, is supported via a separate multi-disciplinary reintegration
panel of the European Fellowships. For the reintegration panel, there shall be mobility into
Europe and the researcher shall have previously been active in Europe for at least 5
consecutive years.
Support to individuals to resume research in Europe after a career break, e.g. after parental
leave, is ensured via a separate multi-disciplinary career restart panel of the European
Fellowships. To qualify for the career restart panel, researchers must not have been active in
research for at least 12 months immediately prior to the deadline for submission.
Researchers receiving an individual fellowship may opt to include a secondment phase in
Europe, notably in the non-academic sector, within the overall duration of their fellowship.
For a fellowship of 18 months or less, the secondment phase may last up to three months. For
a fellowship of more than 18 months, the secondment phase may last up to six months. The
secondment phase can be a single period or be divided into shorter mobility periods. The
secondment should significantly add to the impact of the fellowship.A Career Development Plan should be established jointly by the supervisor(s) and the researcher. In addition to research objectives, this plan comprises the researcher's training and
career needs, including training on transferable skills, planning for publications and
participation in conferences."
