AgreenSkills and AgreenSkills+ are international mobility programmes co-funded by the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreements no. FP7-267196 and no. FP7-609398, respectively.
Both programmes are coordinated by INRA in cooperation with Agreeniu m -IAVFF .
AgreenSkills and AgreenSkills+ are international incoming-outgoing postdoctoral fellowship programmes designed to increase the research potential and career prospectives of inventive, promising and experienced researchers from all disciplines to better respond to the current and future challenges in the fields of agriculture,food, nutrition, environment, animal health and veterinary public health. Disciplinary or multidisciplinary projects developed within AgreenSkills will contribute directly or indirectly to the scientific objectives of the Agreenium members and the European Commission.
Since its first launch in spring 2012, AgreenSkills (2012-2016) has funded mobility projects of more than 85 young experienced researchers holding a PhD and having up to a maximum of 6 years' research experience after their PhD.
Its extension AgreenSkills+ (2014-2019), which is presently running, is open more widely, welcoming applications from young experienced and independent researchers having up to a maximum of 10 years' research experience following their PhD.
AgreenSkills+ welcomes researchers incoming to Agreeniu m -IAVFF institutions' receiving laboratories or outgoing from these same organisations without discrimination in terms of nationality, gender or career breaks.
Researchers will freely propose their topics, construct their mobility research projects and identify the laboratories in which they wish to work, assisted, if necessary, by the AgreenSkills management team .
AgreenSkills and AgreenSkills+ do not only provide researchers with international experience and very attractive salaries (ranging from €3500 up to €5000 according to research experience); they are also designed to allow fellows to boost or diversify the next part of their career, be it scientific or non-scientific, within the public and private sector.
AgreenSkills and AgreenSkills+ are compliant with the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers, the European Charter for Researchers and the ethical procedures and regulations of the European Commission.
