Sweden 2014 VINNMER Marie Curie Incoming Fellowships for International Researchers


VINNOVA offers 100 Marie Curie Incoming Fellowships for research within the Mobility for Growth programme in Sweden. The call targets internationally experienced researchers currently working outside Sweden who have a doctorate (or at least four years’ full-time equivalent research experience) in collaborating with private and/or public sector organisations. For highly experienced researchers (more than ten years’ full-time equivalent research experience) collaboration is optional. No budget has been earmarked for this call; rather, decisions on proposals within the programme as a whole will be accommodated within the programme’s overall budget. The application deadline is March 14, 2014.


Study Subject (s): VINNOVA has opened a call for proposals within the Mobility for Growth programme entitled VINNMER Marie Curie Incoming.
Course Level: The fellowships are available for a research programme.
Scholarship Provider: VINNOVA co-financed by the European Union through the Marie Curie Action
Scholarship can be taken at: Sweden


Eligibility: -The call, VINNMER Marie Curie Incoming targets internationally experienced researchers currently working outside Sweden who have a doctorate or at least four years’ full-time equivalent research experience in collaborating with private and/or public sector organisations. For highly experienced researchers (more than ten years’ full-time equivalent research experience) collaboration is optional.
-The call targets international researchers interested in transnational mobility as a career development option, as well as Swedish private or public R&I organisations (as host organisations) which promote and invest in key people and value-collaboration between private and public sectors as a pathway to success.
-The call promotes gender equality, as noted in VINNOVA’s mission statement. Under representation of gender among female and male researchers can be given strategic priority in areas where there is great need to equalise such imbalances.
-The Swedish-based organisation is the applicant and formal recipient of the grant but the researcher should be the project leader for the research project and the main author of the application.
-The call, VINNMER Marie Curie Incoming and the programme Mobility for Growth is co-financed by the European Union through the Marie Curie Action. No individual researcher may benefit from more than one Marie Curie Action at a time. Researchers who already have ongoing Marie Curie fellowships may only start a VINNMER Marie Curie fellowship after completing their first fellowship. Current or former VINNMER Fellows may not apply to VINNMER Marie Curie Incoming.


Scholarship Open for International Students: International researchers (working outside Sweden) can apply for these fellowships.


Scholarship Description: VINNOVA hereby invites researchers and organisations to submit project financing proposals under the call VINNMER Marie Curie Incoming. It is one of several parallel calls currently open within the programme Mobility for Growth. The final date for application in this first call is March 14, 2014. The call targets internationally experienced researchers currently working outside Sweden who have a doctorate (or at least four years’ full-time equivalent research experience) in collaborating with private and/or public sector organisations. For highly experienced researchers (more than ten years’ full-time equivalent research experience) collaboration is optional. The programme offers a planning grant to cover travel costs for the researcher and enable them to establish a solid relationship between two organisations as a basis for preparing a high quality, full proposal. VINNOVA strongly recommends applying for a planning grant.


Number of award(s): At least 100 researchers are expected to be made VINNMER Marie Curie Fellows throughout the Mobility for Growth programme.


Duration of award(s): The grant is intended to fund half the salary of the researcher (project leader) for the duration of the project. It also covers additional relevant and justifiable costs relating to mobility


What does it cover? No budget has been earmarked for this call; rather, decisions on proposals within the programme as a whole will be accommodated within the programme’s overall budget:
-VINNOVA funding 2013-2017: SEK 120 million.
-EU funding via Marie Curie Actions 2013-2017: EUR 10 million.
-Co-financing from applicants: SEK 100-150 million


Selection criteria: The following criteria will determine VINNOVA’s decision on financing of project proposals:
-Relevance
-R&I Quality
-Feasibility
-Exploitability/Utilisation
-Assessment of need for better gender balance in higher positions (such as professors, research director and the like) can be carried out when documentation is provided. Proposals within areas with a high level of need for better gender distributions can result in strategic decisions which promote the underrepresented gender so as to equalise gender imbalances.


Notification: Not Known


How to Apply: Applications are submitted electronically through the application service to VINNOVA’s e-Services Portal.


Scholarship Application Deadline: The application deadline is March 14, 2014.
