The goal of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships (IF) is to enhance the creative and innovative potential of experienced researchers, wishing to diversify their individual competence in terms of skill acquisition through advanced training, international and intersectoral mobility (between academic and non-academic sector).
Individual Fellowships provide opportunities to acquire and transfer new knowledge and to work on research and innovation in a European context (EU Member States and Associated Countries) or outside Europe. The scheme particularly supports the return and reintegration of researchers from outside Europe who have previously worked here. It also develops or helps to restart the careers of individual researchers that show great potential, considering their experience.

There are two types of Individual Fellowships:

1. European Fellowships

  • Held in the EU or associated countries.
  • Open to researchers either coming to Europe or moving within Europe.
  • Can help to restart research careers after a break such as parental leave.
  • Can also help reintegrate researchers coming back to Europe.

2. Global Fellowships

  • Fund secondments outside Europe for researchers based in the EU or associated countries.
  • There is a mandatory one-year return period.

European Fellowships last from one to two years, Global Fellowships from two to three years.
