Posted on

research-studies_000The Andalusian Knowledge Agency (AAC) of The Regional Ministry of Economy, Innovation, Science and Employment in Andalusia launches ANDALUCÍA TALENT HUB FELLOWSHIPS offering two-year fellowships, co-financed by the Marie Curie Program of the European Union, to experienced researchers.

This institution participates in the EU 7th Framework Program via the Marie Curie Action, “Co-funding of Regional, National and International Programs” to stimulate research activities without mobility restrictions, co-financed by the Junta de Andalucía and the European Commission, under grant agreement no 291780.

The Andalucía Talent Hub Fellowship Programme offers two-year fixed term contracts in excellent conditions, in prestigious research institutions and connected to the powerful network of the Campuses of International Excellence based in Andalusia.

Campuses of International Excellence based in Andalusia: Andalucía Tech, CEIBiotic, CEIMar, ceiA3, CEI CamBio and PatrimoniUN10.

The program includes outgoing and incoming mobility schemes:

Outgoing mobility fellowships allow experienced researchers, residents of EU Member States or Associated Countries, to work between 12 and 18 months in their selected host institution abroad, and then spend a period of between 6 and 12 months in their selected research institution associated to a Campus of International Excellence of Andalucía that is registered as Agent of the Andalusian Knowledge System, completing their return phase in the contracting entity.

Incoming moblity fellowships allow experienced researchers, non-residents of Spain, to carry out their research for 24 months based in their selected research institution associated to a Campus of International Excellence in Andalucía that is registered as Agent of the Andalusian Knowledge System, acting as host institution and contracting entity.

Candidates for both mobility schemes are responsible for securing a research institution aggregated in a Campus of International Excellence of Andalucía and/or a foreign destination centre to host their research activities. This is a requirement to be fulfilled before the deadline for submitting information during the application process.

The objective of the Andalucía Talent Hub Fellowship Programme is to support the training of experienced researchers and help them in their career development with opportunities of mobility and complete freedom of choice of their research field, while they remain connected to the ERA through work contracts with the research institutions aggregated in Campuses of International Excellence based in Andalusia.

The results of their research should lead to significant improvements in technology transfer, innovation and entrepreneurship; and desirably, in the productivity and sustainable development of Europe through the modernisation of its SMEs and traditional manufacturing industries, an issue of particular relevance in Andalucía, Spain, whose Regional Government will co-fund this project.

Number of awards per year: 50 ANDALUCÍA TALENT HUB FELLOWSHIPS WILL BE SELECTED THROUGH TWO OPEN CALLS (2014 Call: 30 / 2015 Call: 20 awards)
