Coordinated by INRA and Agreenium, the AgreenSkills programme (2012-2016) and its extension AgreenSkills+ (2014-2019) are COFUND programmes co-financed by the European Commission under the People Programme of the 7th Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development (FP7).
The AgreenSkills and AgreenSkills+ goals are to encourage international mobility of young researchers - incoming mobility to one of the Agreenium members’ research laboratories (incoming candidates) or outgoing mobility everywhere in the world (outgoing candidates), by supporting research projects with very attractive mobility premiums and personalised career development paths.
It targets the most outstanding young researchers with a PhD, with less than ten years experience since gaining this degree and with no restriction on nationality or origin, in agriculture, food and nutrition, animal health and veterinary public health and the environment.
Approximately 200 young researchers and lecturers-researchers will thus have been recruited when the programme ends through a highly-competitive and fully international selection process. They will enjoy conditions that lend themselves especially to one- to three-year mobility stays.
Two calls for candidates take place every year.
Deadline for the next call for candidates: 28 April 2017
