Eligibility conditions

A proposal will only be considered eligible if it complies with the minimum participation and any other eligibility conditions set out below, depending on the type of action.

Participants are organisations from the academic or the non-academic sector contributing to the project. These two sectors are defined as follows:
- Academic sector
Academic sector consists of public or private higher education establishments awarding academic degrees, public or private non-profit research organisations whose primary mission is to pursue research, and international European interest organisations52.
- Non-academic sector
Non-academic sector includes any socio-economic actor not included in the academic sector and fulfilling the requirements of the Horizon 2020 Rules for Participation.

Participants can be divided in two groups based on their level of participation:
Beneficiaries: signatory to the agreement
Beneficiaries are full partners with complete responsibility for executing the proposed programme and other requirements of the project. They contribute directly to the implementation of the research training programme by appointing, supervising, hosting and training researchers.53 They may also provide secondment opportunities.
Partner organisations: non-signatory of the agreement While providing trainings and hosting researchers during secondments, partner
organisations do not employ the researchers within the project.54 Partner organisations shall include a letter of commitment in the proposal to ensure their real and active participation in the proposed network. The experts will be instructed to disregard the contribution of any partner organisations for which no such evidence of commitment is submitted.

In Individual Fellowships (IF), the beneficiary shall be a participant established in an EU Member State or Associated Country and employing the researcher during the project.

Researchers may be of any nationality. Researchers receive support on the condition that they move from one country to another to broaden or deepen their competences.
Global fellowships and Reintegration panel in IF are open to nationals or long-term residents of EU Member States and Associated Countries. Long-term residence means a period of fulltime research activity of at least 5 consecutive years.

Supported researchers fall into two categories: early-stage or experienced researchers:
Early-stage researchers (ESR) shall at the time of recruitment (ITN, COFUND) or secondment (RISE) by the host organisation, be in the first four years (full-time equivalent research experience) of their research careers and have not yet been awarded a doctoral degree.
Experienced researchers (ER) shall, at the time of the relevant deadline for submission of proposals (IF), recruitment (COFUND) or secondment (RISE) by the host organisation, be in possession of a doctoral degree or have at least four years of full-time equivalent research

Full-time equivalent research experience is measured from the date when a researcher obtained the degree which would formally entitle him or her to embark on a doctorate, either in the country in which the degree was obtained or in the country in which the researcher is recruited or seconded, irrespective of whether or not a doctorate is or was ever envisaged.

Mobility rules:
At the time of the relevant deadline for submission of proposals (IF), or recruitment by the host organisation (ITN), researchers shall not have resided or carried out their main activity (work , studies, etc) in the country of their host organisation for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the reference date. Compulsory national service and/or short stays such as holidays are not taken into account. As far as international European interest organisations are concerned, this rule does not apply to the hosting of eligible researchers.
However the appointed researcher shall not have spent more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the reference date, depending on the action, in the same appointing organisation.In the Career Restart Panel and the Reintegration Panel in IF, researchers shall not have
resided or carried out their main activity in the country of their host organisation for more than 3 years in the 5 years immediately prior to the relevant deadline for submission of proposals.

Duration of support
The support granted to eligible researchers (including staff members in RISE) will cover the
following periods:
2. IF European: 12-24 months
IF Global: 12-24 months for the outgoing phase plus 12 month return phase in Europe
