The Paris Region Fellowship Programme

ParisRegionFP will reinforce network structuration and complete the existing programmes of the Paris Region and its partners for increased impact, by focusing on the recruitment and training of international emerging leaders to foster research and innovation in the Paris Region, in France.


Paris Region


The Paris Region ranks among the most competitive regions in the world for higher education, research and development, innovation and entrepreneurship.

The Paris Region Fellowship Programme (ParisRegionFP) aims to foster excellence in research, by training and developing international mobility and careers of outstanding researchers at post-doctoral level from a large panel of disciplines and of all nationalities.

These Experienced Researchers (ER) will design and implement their original research project in a first-class research group of their choice belonging preferably to one of the 13 “Domain of Major Interest” (DMI) labels endorsed by the Paris Region. The DMIs are key research sectors on which the Paris Region focuses policy support and investments to strengthen its international attractiveness and intersectoral mobility.


Main requirements of the programme


  • Compliance with the Marie Sklodowska-Curie mobility rule: applicants must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in France for more than 12 months in the last three years before the call deadline;
  • At the time of recruitment, applicants must be in possession of a doctoral degree (or have at least four years of full-time equivalent research experience);
  • Applicants can choose a host research group belonging to one of the “Domains of Major Interest” (around 450 laboratories) to develop the research project of their choice. The programme accepts also host laboratories in the Paris Region not part of the DMIs.
  • No other restrictions are implemented, the Paris Region applies strict equal opportunity principles for candidates’ selection and recruitment.
