EVALUATION Prof.Dr.Şakire Pöğün Ege Ün. Tıp Fakültesi (expert evaluator) Intra-European (IEF) International Outgoing (OIF) Fellowships International Incoming(IIF) International Re-integration Grants TÜBİTAK 15 / 12 / 2003
Individual driven actions Outgoing Fellowships World-wide up to 2 years outside Europe + up to 1 year return phase Incoming Fellowships World-wide Return phase possible if from emerging, transition or developing country Intra-European Fellowships Return and Reintegration Mechanisms
Marie Curie Outgoing International Fellowships Researchers from EU and Associated States –Minimum 4 years experience or doctorate –Joint proposal by fellow and host institution To Third Countries Coherent project up to 3 years with 2 phases: –experience outside Europe up to 2 years and –obligatory return to Europe, typically half the duration of the 1st. phase “valorisation” in Europe of experience gained reinforce relations between EU and third countries
Marie Curie Incoming International Fellowships High level third country researchers –Minimum 4 years experience or doctorate –Joint proposal by fellow and host institution Towards Europe Return mechanism for researchers –from developing countries –from emerging and transition economies reinforce the research potential of these countries strengthen relations between the EU and third countries
Marie Curie Return and Reintegration of European Researchers having undertaken research outside Europe during at least 5 years Precise project evaluated on its intrinsic merits Up to 2 years funding for a 3 year contract –Research project (via host institution) Compensate partly for the brain drain
Eligible expenses (IRG) Max: 80 000 Euros/year All expenditure necessary for the project (On the basis of the reintegration project submitted by the proposer and approved by the commission) Personnel other than the eligible researcher, equipment, consumables, travel, etc.
Marie Curie Intra-European Fellowships Aims To provide advanced training tailored to the researchers individual needs in order to become independent.
Marie Curie Intra-European Fellowships Who can Apply Experienced researchers; Mobility required; EU or Associated States Nationals. No age limits
Marie Curie Intra-European Fellowships Profile of the host institutions Universities, research centres, or enterprises established and located in an EU or Associated State.
Marie Curie Intra-European Fellowships How does it work The applicant applies to the Commission jointly with the host institution; Commission selects the applicant and signs a contract with the host; Selected fellow signs an agreement with the host; Fellow stays from 1 to 2 years.
Marie Curie Intra-European Fellowships Indicative scope of activity For each 100 M €, this action should allow: Conclusion of 750 contracts, involving 750 host organisations Selection of 1400 researchers/year The size of the projects will vary between 60 000 and 180 000 €
