FP7 Marie Curie Actions-cofund
The PRESTIGE programme, coordinated by Campus France, is co-financed under the Marie Curie Actions-COFUND of the FP7. PRESTIGE officially started on the 1st September 2014 for a total duration of 5 years (01/09/2014 - 31/08/2019).

This programme aims at fostering the international mobility of post-doc researchers.

Three mobility schemes are available:

Incoming, allowing foreign or French researchers complying with the Marie Curie mobility rules to carry out their post-doctoral research work in France;
Outgoing, for researchers from France wishing to carry out a post-doctoral research project in another country;
Re-integration, targeted at researchers working all over the world wishing to come back to France to further develop their career.
PRESTIGE is a co-financing programme, funding about 1/3 of the post-doc fellow’s living allowance, while the remaining 2/3 are financed by another partner, either public or private. PRESTIGE should help to strengthen and broaden various existing mobility initiatives, thus making both France and the European Research Area (ERA) more attractive to foreign researchers.

PRESTIGE is open to all scientific fields provided that each proposed research project is in compliance with the EU ethics rules. Co-financing partners may however limit the eligible scientific fields, according to their own prioritised thematic areas.
