The PRESTIGE programme, coordinated by Campus France, aims at fostering the international mobility of post-doc researchers.
Three mobility schemes are available:
- Incoming, allowing foreign researchers to carry out their post-doctoral research work in France;
- Outgoing, for researchers from France 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.
PRESTIGE is a co-financing programme, funding about 1/3 of the post-doc fellow's living, mobility and research allowance, while the remaining 2/3 are financed by another partner, either public or private.
Any post-doc level researcher complying with the Marie Curie Actions mobility rules (not have resided or carried out his/her main activity -work, studies, etc. in the country of his/her host organisation for more than 12 months in the three years immediately prior to the application deadline) may apply for funding through PRESTIGE programme. Furthermore, each applicant has to secure co-financing for his/her PRESTIGE mobility from the host organisation (for Incoming and Re-integration schemes) or sending organisation (for the Outgoing scheme).
The PRESTIGE Call for applications is open all year long with four cut-off dates. The next ones are: 30 September 2016, 31 December 2016, 31 March 2017, 30 June 2017
