European Commission: Inviting applications for ‘Individual Fellowships’ to give your career a boost by working abroad.

Funding brief: Individual Fellowships (IF) are a great option if you are an experienced researcher looking to give your career a boost by working abroad. They offer exciting new learning opportunities and a chance to add some sparkle to your CV.

Types of Individual Fellowships: There are two types of Individual Fellowships:
● European Fellowships
● Global Fellowships

European Fellowships:
● Are open to researchers moving within Europe, as well as those coming in from other parts of the world.
● Can restart a research career after a break, such as parental leave.
● Can help researchers coming back to Europe find a new position.
● These Fellowships are held in the EU or associated countries and last for one to two years.

Global Fellowships
● Fund positions outside Europe for researchers based in the EU or associated countries.
● Last between two and three years.

Both types of Fellowship can also include a secondment period of up to three or six months in another organization in Europe.
