Mobility for innovation

The Mobility for Growth and VINNMER programmes support experienced researcher careers through mobility and international collaborations.

Supporting researchers through mobility

The overall objective was to support career development for individuals through mobility. The programme has a funding mechanism for incoming and outgoing transnational mobility for experienced researchers (including a reintegration phase for outgoing mobility), and it promotes active international collaborations between involved organisations.

The programmes targeted experienced researchers who have a doctorate or at least four years' full-time equivalent research experience and who are interested in mobility as a career development option.

Vinnova has run two programmes for supporting international mobility for individual researchers:

  • Mobility for Growth, 2012-2018, budget EUR 35 million, of which EUR 10 million is co-funding from Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (European Commission, contract #291795).
  • VINNMER, 2007-2014, budget EUR 60 million, of which EUR 5 million is co-funding from Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (European Commission, contract #229694).
