Before starting your application please make sure that you have read the latest version of the Handbook for Applicants and all the pages in this section of the website carefully. If you have any questions please contact Sandra Winfield.

CASCADE-FELLOWS is open to applicants from all over the world and research projects in all fields of Life Sciences. However certain mobility rules apply: for example if you are not an EU or Associated Country citizen, you may only apply for a Fellowship with a Host Organisation in the EU or an Associated Country. Please read the section on eligibility criteria carefully. If you are not eligible your application will be rejected and not proceed to evaluation.

The application process for CASCADE-FELLOWS is online only via the Application Portal. If you do not already have an account on this site, you will need to create one using the links at the top of this page. There is a summary of the form in the Downloads section for information. You may find it helpful to print this out to use for reference, but remember that it is only intended for guidance and cannot be used to submit your application.

You can only submit an application during the period a call is open. No late applications will be accepted.

You can only submit ONE application in each Call. If you submit more than one application both will be rejected. If your application is unsuccessful you may apply in the next Call if there is one.

Please make sure that you allow plenty of time to obtain necessary supporting documentation from your Host Organisation, especially during periods when staff may be away on holiday. You must show that your Host Organisation has collaborated with you in developing your application and is happy to support your proposal before it can be accepted.
