International Research Staff Exchange Scheme call for proposals launched

The European Commission's Directorate General for Research has published a call for proposals for the Marie Curie International Research Staff Exchange Scheme (IRSES). The call is part of the 2009 People work programme of the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7).

The IRSES is a new type of action. It aims to strengthen research partnerships through staff exchanges and networking activities between European research organisations and organisations from countries with which the Community has a science and technology agreement or is in the process of negotiating one, and countries covered by the European Neighbourhood policy. It was first implemented in 2008.

While existing Marie Curie actions promote mobility of individual researchers, this new scheme is designed to establish or reinforce long-term research cooperation through a coordinated joint programme of exchange of researchers for short periods.

Financial support will be provided for a period of 24 to 48 months for the transnational exchange of researchers, technical and management staff.

The indicative budget for this call amounts to EUR 30 million.

To see the full details of the call, please consult the following web address:

The deadline for submitting proposals is 27 March 2009.
