Marie Curie International Reintegration Grants offer financial support for professional (re)integration to European researchers that have carried out research outside Europe.
Who can apply?
IRG applicants must be researchers who are nationals of EU Member States or Associated Countries with at least 4 years’ full-time research experience or a doctoral degree. You must have been actively engaged in research in a Third Country for at least 3 years – in other words, a country that is neither an EU Member State nor an Associated Country.
What does the funding cover?
The reintegration grant is a flat-rate payment, which is a contribution towards your project costs. The grant will be paid for 2-4 years. If your grant application is successful, the European Commission will establish a grant agreement with your host organisation in Europe. The host will then reach an employment agreement with you and is expected to pay your salary (although the grant may help paying part of your salary). Your host organisation must be a university, a research centre or an enterprise in an EU Member State or Associated Country.
The grant must be used within 2-4 years for a research project. Your host institution must give a contractual undertaking to ensure your reintegration for at least the duration of the grant.
