General Conditions of Nationality and Mobility and Eligibility Criteria

Researchers are normally required to undertake trans-national mobility (i.e. move from one country to another) when taking up their appointment. Three general rules apply to the appointment of researchers in a network:

  • Researchers can be nationals of any country other than the country of the premises of the host organisation where they will carry out their project; however nationals of countries outside the EU and Associated States can only be recruited by hosts that are located in Member States or Associated States.
  • Researchers must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of the host for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to their recruitment. This rule does not apply in cases where a researcher is subsequently appointed in another node of the same network within the same country.
  • At the time of appointment, Early Stage Researcher (ESR) applicants should have no more than 4 years experience (FTE) after graduation and no PhD.
  • At the time of appointment, Experienced Researcher (ER) applicants should have no more than 5 years experience (FTE) after graduation.
