Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship

The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships ― funded under Horizon 2020 Programme – are the main tool from European Union to support the transnational mobility and career development of the most talented researchers.

All researchers with a PhD degree or at least four years of experience in research in any discipline can participate.

European Research Council grants

The European Research Council (ERC) finances frontier research projects carried out by outstanding researchers of any nationality and age, hosted by European research institutions. The funding programme is open to proposals in any discipline and on any topic. The contribution allows the principal investigator to establish or enlarge his or her research group to carry out an ambitious project.

The main types of grant  are the Starting Grant for researchers with 2-7 years of experience since completion of PhD, the Consolidator Grant for researchers with 7-12  years of experience since completion of PhD, and the Advanced Grant for established researchers.
