ERA Talents aims to support training and mobility of researchers, innovators, and other research and innovation talents across sectors with a particular focus on widening countries. The grant covers expenses related to the ERA Talents participating organisations and individual talents hosted/seconded (administrative costs, training costs, travel and subsistence costs and salaries for seconded staff, and costs associated with dissemination & communication and transfer of knowledge). This call particularly encourages experimentation by diverse and heterogeneous consortia in order to develop best practices for intersectoral talent circulation at the benefit of widening countries.

Secondments are open to researchers, innovators, and other research and innovation talents – such as administrative, managerial and technical staff supporting R&I activities in their organisations – from any career stage, excluding though doctoral candidates (PhD students).

The Commission estimates that an EU contribution of between EUR 1.00 and 3.00 million would allow these outcomes to be addressed appropriately.

The total indicative budget for the topic is EUR 24.00 million.

Grants have an expected duration of up to 4 years.

ERA Talents call is open for applications. Deadline is 15th November 2022. 

Minimum eligibility condition:

  • Applications must be submitted by a consortium including at least three independent legal entities in three different EU Member States or Horizon Europe Associated Countries, at least two of which established in a different Widening Country.

  • Participating organisations must include partners from both academic and non-academic sectors, and may include umbrella organisations or national/regional associations thereof.

  • Secondments must last between 3 and 24 months for the same staff member.
