AgreenSkills offers 142 research fellowships

AgreenSkills is an open international mobility programme offering young researchers of all nationalities and all disciplinary fields, incoming and outcoming fellowships to develop challenging research projects in the fields of agriculture, food and nutrition, environment, animal health and veterinary public health. 142 fellowships with attractive recruitment conditions will be offered over four years.


Coordinated by INRA and Agreenium , the AgreenSkills programme (2012-2016) is co-funded by the European Commission in the framework of the COFUND - FP7 People Programme.

AgreenSkills sets out to encourage the international mobility of young researchers, from 6 to 24 months for outgoing fellows and from 12 to 24 months for fellows coming to France (the incoming fellows), by supporting research projects with very attractive mobility allowances and personalized support for career development plans.

It is aimed at talented young researchers from all over the world holding a PhD and having a maximum of ten years research experience after their Master’s degree.
The programme concerns all the research laboratories of Agreenium members.
The AgreenSkills programme is implemented through a continuous call for submission with two selection rounds per year. This continuous call is open for 3 years.
The AgreenSkills website provides general information about the programme, eligibility criteria, all necessary documents as well as the official forms and templates. The website also includes information about the mobility and hosting conditions. Applications must be submitted through the online secure application system which will be available when the selection process opens.
