The policy context Human Resources in RD
  • Mobility of researchers across the 33 countries
    associated to the FP is a condition to make the
    European Research Area (ERA) functioning
  • Europe needs to build excellent research careers
    and link them to EU research initiatives
  • From the traditional concept of brain drain
    versus brain gain to the acknowledgement of the
    fact that excellent science careers are
    international - brain circulation or brain
    exchange
  • From a Mobility programme to an active career
    development programme acquiring additional
    qualifications and targeted trainings through
    transnational mobility

FP7 overview (2007-2013)
  • FP7 is EUs main instrument for funding research
  • FP7 breakdown ( million)

Total EC budget M 50 5210

PEOPLE Programme
  • A dedicated programme for structuring training,
    mobility and
  • career development
  • Objectives
  • Strengthening the human potential in RD in
    Europe
  • Stimulate people to enter into the profession of
    researcher
  • Encouraging researchers to stay in Europe
  • Attracting researchers from around the world
  • Addressed to researchers at all stages of their
    careers

Marie Curie Actions FP7 vs FP6
  • FP7 4 750 million over 7 years (50 average
    increase compared to FP6)
  • FP6 human resources and mobility 1580 million
    over 5 years
  • Continuity of FP6
  • with focus on structuring impact
  • increased private sector participation
  • Strengthened international dimension
  • Balanced gender objective

PEOPLE Programme
  • Main characteristics
  • Open to all domains of research (bottom-up
    approach)
  • Application through calls for proposals
  • Selection criteria
  • ST quality
  • Quality of participants / (Training)
  • Impact
  • Implementation
  • Trans-national and intersectorial (IAPP) mobility
  • Budget covers mainly salaries of researchers

Marie Curie Actions
  • Five Schemes
  • Initial training of researchers
  • Life-long training and career development
  • Industry-academia pathways and partnerships
  • World Fellowships (former International
    dimension)
  • Specific actions

10
Marie Curie Actions in FP7
  • Participants from which countries ?
  • 4 categories of countries
  • EU Member States (MS)
  • Associated Countries (AC) Iceland,
    Liechtenstein, Norway, Croatia, Serbia, Turkey,
    FYROM, Switzerland, Israel
  • International Cooperation Partner Countries
    (ICPC)based on three categories according to
    income per capita (low-income Angola,
    lower-middle-income China -, or
    upper-middle-income - Russia).
  • Other (non-AC, non-ICPC) Third Countries (OTC)

  • Reply to the evaluation criteria/ Coherence of
    the proposal
  • Explain clearly the aim and the content of the
    research project
  • Apply the reimbursement rates provided by the
    Commission (monthly living allowances, correction
    coefficient rates, amount of benefits, travel
    expenses etc.)
  • IMPORTANT
  • Prefer employment contracts to researchers with
    full social security coverage vs. fixed amount
    fellowships with minimum social security coverage
  • Clearly mention in the proposal that the
    selection of researchers (ITN) will be based on
    open, transparent and internationally comparable
    selection and recruitment procedures according
    to the principles applied by the European Charter
    for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the
    Recruitment of Researchers
