Stage 3: Researcher Excellence Grants and Researcher Mobility Grants

Researcher Excellence Grants (REG)
The aim of the Researcher Excellence Grant is “To enlarge the number of organisations with capacities closely relating to metrology”* within the EU Member States and FP7 associated countries.

A Researcher Excellence Grant provides financial support for an experienced researcher who is capable of making a substantial contribution through research activities relevant to the JRP objectives. The research must be mainly undertaken at a Home Organisation that is not part of the national metrology systems (i.e. a non NMI/DI organisation). This aims to “open the JRPs to the best science” *.

Additionally, there is the opportunity to undertake a period of Research based at a Guestworking Organisation (a funded JRP-Partner, or REG Home Organisation) located in a different country to the Home Organisation . This transnational Guestworking can be between 1 month and 30% of the total REG duration.

REG allowances include: a salary allowance, research & training allowance, and contribution to the Home organisation’s overhead. For REGs including transnational Guestworking further allowances include: contribution to the Guestworking Organisation’s overhead, living allowance, travel allowance and family allowance (where applicable)

The eligibility criteria are found here Eligibility. Details of the grant allowances are found in Guide 7 Applying for EMRP Researcher Grants

Researcher Mobility Grants (RMG)

The aim of the Researcher Mobility Grant is “to increase the capability of the European metrology researcher community”*.

A Researcher Mobility Grant provides financial support for a researcher at any stage of their career, to undertake research activities relevant to the JRP objectives. This aims to “to develop the capacity of individuals in Metrology”*.

The research must be undertaken at a Guestworking Organisation (a funded JRP-Partner, or REG Home Organisation) located in a different country to the researcher’s employer.

RMGs are open to many countries, but EURAMET particularly encourages applications from researchers in EURAMET countries which are not yet participating in the EMRP: Albania, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, FYR Macedonia, Greece, Iceland, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, and Serbia. This aims to support EURAMET member countries building and furthering their capacity in metrology.

RMG allowances include research & development allowance, contribution to the Guestworking Organisation’s overhead, living allowance, travel allowance and family allowance (where applicable)

The eligibility criteria are found here Eligibility. Details of the grant allowances are found in "Guide 7 Applying for EMRP Researcher Grants"
