New Transnational Mobility
Requirements
• Must not have been resident in host country for more
that 12 months in the last 3 years immediately before
application deadline (for individual actions)
• NEW: Only International Outgoing Fellowships and
International Re-integration Grants have a nationality
requirement

International Fellowship
• Third country nationals in the EU/AC: apply for an Intra-European
Fellowship
• Researchers can now return to the country of their nationality if the
mobility rule is respected
• NEW: additional ‘Impact’ sub-criterion
for individual fellowships
‘benefit of the mobility to the ERA’
Marie Curie Initial Training Networks
http://www.ukro.ac.uk
What is an ITN?
FP7 – Marie Curie - ITN
• Aims:
• Offering a series of fellowships to ESR and EXR
through a Joint Training Programme including
complementary skills modules
• And, as an option, hold short training events open to
researchers outside the network
• As an option, recruit ‘visiting scientists’
• ITNs are in:
• Defined scientific fields as well as inter-disciplinary,
new and emerging supra-disciplinary fields
FP7 – Marie Curie - ITN
Who can participate in an ITN?
• At least 3 different research groups from Member
or Associated States
• BUT ALSO it can be single or twin sites (in
Member or Associated States) if the international
context is strong
• Third country partners are eligible, in addition to
the minimum requirements. International Cooperation Partner Countries (ICPC) may receive
funding, whilst those in non-ICPCs may receive
funding if absolutely essential for the project
Who participates in an ITN?
FP7 – Marie Curie - ITN
• An ITN has both industrial and academic partners.
Industry must be in involved at one of three levels:
• As a full partner
• Provider of specific training or secondment
opportunities
• On the Advisory Board
• An ITN must have
• Coherent quality standards and mutual recognition of
training/ diplomas
Who can you recruit to an ITN?
FP7 – Marie Curie - ITN
• An ITN supports researchers:
•
•
•
•
With up to 5 years FTE
From all over the world
For periods of 3 - 36 months (ESRs)
For periods of 3 – 24 months (EXRs)
• As well as visiting scientists (optional)
• To carry out teaching and supervisory work
• For a period of at least 1 month

ITNs – key issues
FP7 – Marie Curie - ITN
• Ratio ESR/ER:
- ‘The total amount of ESRs and ERs should be
reasonable and in line with what is recommended in
the Guide for Applicants’ (80/20)
• Visiting Scientists:
- Exceptional and duly justified in the context of the
training programme
• Conferences:
- ‘should be proportionate to the proposed research
training programme’
- ‘is an opportunity for the recruiter researchers to
exchange knowledge with more experienced
researchers from outside the network’.
