PRESTIGE aims at fostering the international mobility of post-doc researchers. PRESTIGE is open to all scientific fields provided that each proposed research project is in compliance with the EU ethics rules. The applicant must be in possession of a doctoral degree or having at least 4 years of research experience. There is no age limit and no nationality requirement.

Three mobility schemes are available:

  • Incoming, allowing foreign or French researchers complying with the Marie Curie Actions mobility rules to carry out their post-doctoral research work in France;
  • Outgoing, for researchers already working in French research institutions and universities (French citizens or other nationalities) wishing to carry out a post-doctoral research project in another country
  • Re-integration, targeted at nationals of EU Member States or Associated Countries working in research for at least 3 years in another Third Country to come to France to further develop their career.

The PRESTIGE Call for applications is open all year long with four cut-off dates:
