35 National Institute of Chemistry Ljubljana, 14th March 2014 Ruđer Bošković Institute FP7 Marie Curie Actions Intra-European Fellowships for career development (IEF) At various stages of their career, experienced researchers may welcome an opportunity to acquire new research skills or experience working in other sectors. Marie Curie Intra-European Fellowships for Career Development specifically aim at helping experienced researchers to try something new for a while. Who can apply? Researchers can be of any nationality but as a general rule must move from one Member State or Associated country to another in order to carry out the project. You must have either a doctoral degree or at least 4 years’ full-time equivalent research experience, after obtaining a degree permitting you to embark on a doctorate. What does the funding cover? Financial support is provided for a period of 12-24 months (full-time equivalent), for individual projects presented by experienced researchers from Member States or Associated Countries in liaison with a host organisation from a Member State or Associated Country.
