[PEGASUS]² Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellowships

With co-financing of the COFUND work programme (No 665501)* within the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) of Horizon 2020, the FWO launches a new mobility programme in 2015, entitled ‘[PEGASUS]², giving wings to your career’. This programme aims to stimulate the international mobility of researchers by attracting excellent postdoctoral researchers to the Flemish Community via incoming fellowships on the one hand, as well as by offering postdoctoral researchers in the Flemish Community the opportunity to carry out part of their research abroad on the other hand. Therefore the [PEGASUS]² MSCA programme involves two types of postdoctoral fellowships: the INCOMING and OUTOING [PEGASUS]² Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellowships. With the obtained co-funding of MSCA COFUND the FWO will be able to grant 30 INOMING [PEGASUS]² MSCA fellowships and 30 OUTGOING [PEGASUS]² MSCA fellowships, spread over two calls in 2015.

Deadlines: February 1, 2016 and May 1, 2016.
