Marie Curie International Outgoing Fellowships for international experienced researchers.The International Outgoing Fellowship (IOF) aims to reinforce the international dimension of the career of European experienced researchers by giving them the opportunity to be trained and acquire new knowledge in a third country (outside Europe) high-level research organisation.
Subsequently, these researchers will return with the acquired knowledge and experience to a European organisation, in a Member State or an Associated Country. Researchers must be nationals of a Member State or an Associated Country.

The IOF consists of financial support to 2-phases mobility projects:
-The 1st phase has a duration of about 24 months in a partner organisation in a third country.
-The 2nd phase of the project is to be spent in a return host organisation in a Member State or an Associated Country. This phase of reintegration has a duration of 12 months and is mandatory.
As the other Marie Curie Actions, the IOF follows a bottom-up approach, e.g. the research topic is freely chosen by the researcher in collaboration with the return host organisation with a view to completing his/her expertise. The IOF is crosscutting, e.g. any scientific field can be funded.
