[PEGASUS]² Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellowships

In the current programme framework, there will be no future calls


With co-financing of the COFUND work programme (No 665501)* within the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) of Horizon 2020, the FWO launches a new mobility programme in 2015, entitled ‘[PEGASUS]², giving wings to your career’. This programme aims to stimulate the international mobility of researchers by attracting excellent postdoctoral researchers to the Flemish Community via incoming fellowships on the one hand, as well as by offering postdoctoral researchers in the Flemish Community the opportunity to carry out part of their research abroad on the other hand. Therefore the [PEGASUS]² MSCA programme involves two types of postdoctoral fellowships: the INCOMING and OUTOING [PEGASUS]² Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellowships. With the obtained co-funding of MSCA COFUND the FWO will be able to grant 30 INCOMING [PEGASUS]² MSCA fellowships and 30 OUTGOING [PEGASUS]² MSCA fellowships, spread over two calls in 2015 (deadlines: February 1, 2016 and May 1, 2016). 

Types of fellowships?

You are an excellent postdoctoral researcher working outside Belgium and you wish to carry out your research (again) in the Flemish Community? If so, don’t hesitate to submit your application for an INCOMING [PEGASUS]² Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellowship.

You are an excellent postdoctoral researcher working in the Flemish Community and you wish to carry out part of your research abroad? If so, don’t hesitate to submit your application for an OUTGOING [PEGASUS]² Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellowship.

Both fellowships are considered of the same value as the regular postdoctoral fellowships of the FWO. Therefore, a candidate must choose between these three possible postdoctoral fellowships (regular, INCOMING or OUTGOING) and, in line with the FWO regulations, the candidate can not apply more than twice for a postdoctoral fellowship.
