Brussels, 15 Dec 2004
The European Commission has published a call for proposals for Marie Curie Host Fellowships for the transfer of knowledge under the Sixth Framework Programme (FP6).
The fellowships (area 188.8.131.52 in the work programme) will be directed at European organisations (universities, research centres, enterprises, etc.) in need of developing new areas of competence, as well as at furthering the development of research capabilities in the less-favoured regions of the EU and in the associated candidate countries. Knowledge transfer fellowships will allow experienced researchers to be hosted at such organisations for the transfer of knowledge, research competencies and technology.
The total indicative budget for this call is 30 million euro for the Marie Curie Development scheme and 15 million euro for the Marie Curie Industry-Academia Strategic Partnership scheme.
