Candidates are not required to mention whether they are applying as young or independent researchers and need only follow the same and single application procedures. You will be informed by e-mail within a few weeks of your submission about whether your request has passed this stage or not.
This step can be performed before the eligibility step.
Please note that AgreenSkills+ provides a monthly mobility allowance as a complement to a basic salary. The basic salary of an incoming fellow must be provided by the hosting lab. In some cases (invited researcher), this basic salary could be his/her current salary.
3.1. Finalise a research project proposal in relation with the hosting lab you have targeted and an identified scientific mentor in this lab.
3.2. Fill in all documents requested for an application
Please read carefully the Guide for Applicants . Once you have access to the application system, you can complete it gradually, step by step following the instructions. The system saves all your data until final submission. All relevant templates and documents can be found under the Documents section of the website.
3.3. Submit your proposal online before the submission deadline
The AgreenSkills website and submission system ensure transparency and traceability of the proposals, while processing and securing exchanges in full respect of confidentiality and anonymity.
Each submitted application is assessed by up to 3 international reviewers, and then by the AgreenSkills Scientific Committee panels. The evaluation process takes up to 10 weeks.
The AgreenSkills Steering Committee decides which research projects have to be funded, based on the Scientific Committee's recommendations and ranking.
