Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Individual Fellowships -European Fellowship by German Research Organizations (KoWi), Germany
Researchers can apply for an Individual Fellowship (IF) if they have either a PhD or at least four (04) years of full-time research experience after their graduation.
The choice of topic is open to all fields of research. The project has to be conducted together with a host institution that is either located in an EU Member State (MS) or Associated Country (AS).
The application must be made jointly with a host institution and a scientific supervisor and has fixed call deadlines.

The host institution may not, however, be located in the country of residence of the applicant (mobility rule).
Fellows will play an active role in shaping their own training program and professional development. A Career Development Plan will have to be established together with the supervisor, which includes training needs and research objectives.
