Marie Curie’s International Research Staff Exchange Scheme helps research organisations to set up or strengthen long-term cooperation with others, through a coordinated exchange programme for their staff.
Who can apply?

Public organisations or private bodies with a public mission (e.g. universities, research centres etc) which carry out research can take part in IRSES. Your proposal must include at least two independent participants in at least two different EU Member States or Associated Countries PLUS one or more organisations located either in countries with which the EU has an S&T Agreement (a science and technology cooperation agreement) or in countries covered by the European Neighbourhood Policy..
What does the funding cover?

For each staff member from an EU Member State or Associated Country staying in an eligible Third Country, a fixed monthly allowance to cover mobility costs (including travel costs) will be paid by IRSES.

In exceptional cases, the costs of stays in Europe by staff from certain Third Countries may also be covered.

In all cases, the staff must remain employed by their organisations and are expected to return after the mobility period. Grant Agreements with the Commission are signed for a period of 2-4 years. The maximum duration of the individual staff exchanges will be 12 months.
