It’s OPEN! The 3rd YERUN Research Mobility Awards call (2019-2020)

Are you a researcher from a YERUN institution willing to collaborate with another researcher from a member of our network? The YERUN Research Mobility Awards are competitive awards for PhD students, Postdocs and early career researchers, equivalent to Euraxess Research Profiles R1 (up to the point of PhD) and R2 (PhD holders, Postdocs or equivalent who are not yet fully independent or until 8 years since completion of PhD) from YERUN Universities*. The programme provides support for researchers to undertake a minimum of 1-week stay at a YERUN partner institution from a different country.

The programme provides a platform to:

  • work with other YERUN researchers on a research project, publication, or new collaborative activity;
  • promote multi-disciplinary research across the YERUN network;
  • enrich the research and training opportunities for PhD students, early career and postdoctoral scholars within the YERUN network.

A YERUN Research Mobility Award provides a flat-rate award of 1,000 Euros (lump sum) to cover your expenses during your research visit (please note that this amount might be subject to tax withholding). You will not have to provide receipts and it is your responsibility to arrange your travel and accommodation.


  • You must be a current researcher or PhD student [Euraxess Research Profiles R1 and R2] at one of the YERUN institutions*. Researchers from non-YERUN institutions are not eligible.
  • Research Mobility Awards will only be used to visit other YERUN institutions in a country different than the one of your home institution.
  • You must agree to submit a short report on the outcomes shortly after your visit and a follow-up report describing any subsequent research collaborations with YERUN partners no later than one year after the award. This information will be used for YERUN communication and evaluation activities.
  • All applications must be submitted with a letter of support signed by the department that will host your visit.
  • Researchers that have been previously awarded a YRMA are not eligible to apply.
