The program aims at fellows who possess a PhD degree and have maximum eight years of research experience. The research project is to be done at postdoc level either within Europe with a 2-year fellowship (European Fellowship), or outside Europe (2 years) with a mandatory 1-year return phase to Europe with the 3-year Global Fellowship.

An information webinar was given on 21st May 2021. To access the webinar see "MSCA Postdoc Fellowships info webinar 2021" above. 


As of June 17th,  Switzerland is regarded as a Third Country to Horizon Europe. This means organizations in Switzerland cannot host European Fellowships or Global Fellowships. For Global Fellowships, Switzerland can serve as Outgoing Phase country but not Return phase country. Swiss nationals are not eligible for participation in MSCA Global Fellowships, unless they are long-term residents in a Member State or Associated Country. For more info see link below "Update on Swiss participation in Horizon Europe".
