Different research groups in Switzerland are involved as a potential host institution. The candidate has to contact directly the group of interest to enquire on the availability to support the proposed research project or on the possible research topics offered by the host institution.
The aim is to broaden and deepen researcher’s individual competence shortly after having obtained a PhD, in particular in terms of acquisition of multi- or interdisciplinary skills and intersectoral experiences. The program will further help to reintegrate researchers into a research career in the Member States and Associated countries after a mobility experience. With the aim at increasing the European-wide mobility possibilities for training and career development, this program is intended to promote early stage researcher careers with no nationality and mobility restrictions. Special rules hold in case of documented career breaks and parental leaves.
