• Can the proposals be submitted any time? 

No. There are dedicated time periods for applications to be submitted to the NanoTRAINforGrowth II - INL Post-Doctoral Fellowship Programme call.  Open calls are launched and published on INL Job Portal website. Calls are normally open during two months.

 

  • What is the normal duration of the funded projects?

The project duration is 24 months.

 

  • Can I submit the same project proposal for NanoTRAINforGrowth II - INL Post-Doctoral Fellowship Programme and Marie Curie fellowship at the level of European Commission simultaneously?

Yes, the same research proposal can be submitted for the NanoTRAINforGrowth II - Post-Doctoral Fellowship Programme and Marie Curie fellowship at the level of European Commission simultaneously. However, if a researcher wins both of them, he/she will have to choose which one to accept because double financing is not permitted in the Marie Curie framework.

Only one application can be submitted per call per person. 

If you've applied in previous calls and have been rejected, you can submit a new application in a new call.
