The Hellenic Foundation for European and Foreign Policy (ELIAMEP) is interested in hosting researchers intending to submit an application for the call of Individual Fellowships in the framework of the Marie Sklodowska Curie Actions programme (MSCA-IF-2016 ). Applicants must have α doctoral degree or at least four years’ full-time research experience by the time of the call deadline. Applicants can be of any nationality but they must not have spent more than 12 months in the last 3 years in Greece (mobility rule). Fellowships take form of European Fellowships or Global Fellowships. Please, find below further information on the Fellowships.
ELIAMEP welcomes project proposals from all areas of social and economic sciences. However, priority will be given to those projects that fit best with ELIAMEP’s existing research interests and orientations and gain the support of at least one ELIAMEP senior researcher. The project proposal will be submitted jointly by the researcher and ELIAMEP. Researchers who wish to cooperate with ELIAMEP for the submission of a proposal should check that they fulfill the respective eligibility criteria and then send an expression of interest, consisting of a short CV and a two-page summary presentation of their research proposal, to firstname.lastname@example.org  .
Expressions of interest may be submitted to ELIAMEP up to 2 months prior to the call deadline (14 September 2016). Proposals will be pre-selected on the basis of internal evaluation and the availability of suitable supervision. Candidates will be informed of the results of the pre-selection well before the call deadline.
Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships- European Fellowships (MSCA-IF-EF)
European Fellowships are open to researchers either coming to Europe from any country in the world or moving within Europe. The researcher must comply with the rules of mobility. Return and reintegration of researchers (MSCA-IF-EF-RI) into a longer term research position in Europe, including in their country of origin, is supported via the multi-disciplinary Reintegration Panel (RI) of the European Fellowships. 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 (CAR) of the European Fellowships (MSCA-IF-EF-CAR). 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. The Society & Enterprise Panel (SE) aims to facilitate career moves between the academic and non-academic sectors and to open attractive career opportunities for researchers outside academia (MSCA-IF-EF-SE). In the Career Restart Panel (CAR), Reintegration Panel (RI), or Society & Enterprise Panel (SE), the researcher must not have resided or carried out the main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of the beneficiary for more than 36 months in the 5 years immediately before the call deadline.
Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships- Global Fellowships (IF-GF)
Global Fellowships are based on a secondment to a third country and a mandatory 12 month return period to a European host. The researcher must comply with the rules of mobility in the country where the Global Fellowship secondment takes place, not for the country of the return phase.
