The COFUND scheme aims to stimulate regional, national or international programmes to foster excellence in researchers' training, mobility and career development. Applicants submit multi-annual proposals for new or existing doctoral programmes or fellowship programmes which are expected to have an impact on enhancing research- and innovation related human resources on regional, national or international level.

COFUND takes the form of:

  • Doctoral programmes- Doctoral programmes address the development and broadening of the research competencies of early-stage researchers.
  • Fellowship programmes- Fellowship programmes fund individual research training and career development fellowships for experienced researchers.
