È stata pubblicata la prima Call for Proposals nell'ambito del progetto europeo Talents a sostegno della mobilità internazionale di ricercatori esperti.

TALENTS è un programma di mobilità internazionale sviluppato da AREA Science Park nell'ambito del Coordinamento regionale, con il sostegno della Regione Autonoma Friuli Venezia Giulia, allo scopo di supportare ed incoraggiare la mobilità internazionale ed intersettoriale di ricercatori esperti, valorizzando il loro potenziale professionale e supportandoli nell'individuazione di future opportunità lavorative.

Il progetto è finanziato dalla Commissione Europea nell'ambito del Programma People (Azione COFUND).

TALENTS is a Fellowship Programme - cofunded by European Commission in the framework of FP7 People Programme (COFUND Action) - developed by AREA Science Park with the endorsement of the Regional Authority of Friuli Venezia Giulia and is aimed at supporting the mobility of experienced researchers, enhancing their professional potential and their future employability.

The programme includes 2 mobility schemes:

  1. Incoming mobility fellowships: addressed to experienced researchers of EU Member States, Associated countries or Third countries, intentioned to develop a project in one of the Scientific Institutions of the Friuli Venezia Giulia Coordination Network (18 months duration).
  2. Outgoing mobility fellowships: addressed to experienced researchers of any nationality for a stay (12 months) in another EU Member State, Associated or Third country, with a "return phase" to be spent at the origin institution (6 months). Researchers must be operating in one of the Scientific Institutions of the Friuli Venezia Giulia Coordination Network.

Fellows will have the opportunity to choose both the research topic and the hosting institution. TALENTS will support 10 fellowships: 5 for incoming researchers and 5 for outgoing researchers. There will be 2 calls for proposals and for each call 5 fellowships will be awarded.

The selection procedure
The applicants will be selected by a Scientific Selection Committee (SSC) supervised by AREA Science Park. The Selection Committee will include high level professionals selected at an international level on the basis of several criteria (e.g. international background, experience in the private or public sectors).

Eligibility requirements
To be eligible, the candidates must have the following minimum entry requirements:

  1. (a) be in possession of a doctoral degree, independently of the time taken to acquire it; or (b) have at least four years of full-time equivalent research experience (including the period of research training) after the degree which formally allowed them to embark on a doctorate in the country in which the degree/diploma was obtained or in the country where the fellowship is taking place; (c) be nationals of Member States, Associated Countries and Third Countries.;
  2. three knowledgeable referees from the same scientific field of the present fellowship;
