Individual Fellowships support the mobility of researchers within and outside Europe. The fellowship enables them to carry out a research project at one or more host institutions in or outside Europe. There are two types of Individual Fellowships: the European Fellowship (mobility within/to Europe) and the Global Fellowship (mobility outside Europe with a mandatory 12-month return phase to Europe).
