The WHRI-ACADEMY fellowship programme is co-financed by the European Union through the Marie Curie Action "Co-funding of regional, national and international programmes (COFUND)". Therefore, WHRI-ACADEMY fellowships are technically also Marie Curie fellows.
Under EU rules individual researchers cannot benefit, at the same time, from more than one Marie Curie Action. These are:
- Initial Training Networks (ITN)
- Intra-European Fellowships for career development (IEF)
- International Outgoing Fellowships for career development (IOF)
- International Incoming Fellowships (IIF)
- Career Integration Grants (CIS)
- Industry-Academia Partnerships and Pathways (IAPP)
- International Research Staff Exchange Scheme (IRSES)
- Co-funding of regional, national and international programmes (COFUND)
Should you have (or have had) a Marie Curie fellowship, which ends prior to taking up a co-funded fellowship at WHRI-ACADEMY, this would not be a problem.
