-The call, VINNMER Marie Curie Incoming targets internationally experienced researchers currently working outside Sweden who have a doctorate or at least four years’ full-time equivalent research experience in collaborating with private and/or public sector organisations. For highly experienced researchers (more than ten years’ full-time equivalent research experience) collaboration is optional.
-The call targets international researchers interested in transnational mobility as a career development option, as well as Swedish private or public R&I organisations (as host organisations) which promote and invest in key people and value-collaboration between private and public sectors as a pathway to success.
-The call promotes gender equality, as noted in VINNOVA’s mission statement. Under representation of gender among female and male researchers can be given strategic priority in areas where there is great need to equalise such imbalances.
-The Swedish-based organisation is the applicant and formal recipient of the grant but the researcher should be the project leader for the research project and the main author of the application.
-Current or former VINNMER Fellows may not apply to VINNMER Marie Curie Incoming.
-At the call deadline, the individual researcher must either hold a doctorate (regardless of the time taken to complete doctoral studies) or have at least four years’ full-time (or equivalent) research experience. This may include the research training after the degree/diploma which allowed them to embark on a doctorate in the country awarding the degree/diploma, or in the host country (regardless of whether a doctorate was planned).
-At the proposal submission deadline, the researcher must not have resided or conducted his/her main activity (work, studies, etc.) in Sweden (the country of the host organisation) for more than 12 months in the three years immediately prior to the call deadline.
-Assessment of need for better gender balance in higher positions (such as professors, research director and the like) can be carried out when documentation is provided. Proposals within areas with a high level of need for better gender distributions can result in strategic decisions which promote the underrepresented gender so as to equalise gender imbalances.
