Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) Switzerland is associated to the first pillar of Horizon 2020 until the end of 2016. So we can host all MSCA European Fellowships. European Fellowships are held in EU Member States or Associated Countries and are open to researchers currently within and outside Europe.

Global Fellowships are based on a secondment to a third country and a mandatory 12 months return period to a European host or Associated country. The researcher must comply with the rules of mobility in the country where the Fellowship takes place. At the time of the relevant deadline for submission of proposals, researchers shall not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies etc.) in the country of their host organisation for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the reference date.
