Our schedule – Career-Fit PLUS

The Second and final Call for Proposals has closed. Awards will be announced in Spring 2021.


Prior to creating an application, potential applicants must contact and discuss their fellowship application with the proposed academic mentor.  It is the responsibility of each applicant to identify suitable academic and company mentors. Please note that Enterprise Ireland is not in a position to recommend individual mentors.

Applicants should also contact the Research Office in the proposed Host Organisation for information and clarification on the call and for institutional proposal preparation support.  The Research Office (RO) will have to endorse the application once the applicants have submitted it.  It is highly recommended that applicants contact the RO of their proposed host organisation as soon as they decide to apply for a CAREER-FIT PLUS fellowship and identify an academic mentor.  Applications that are not endorsed by the RO of the proposed host organisation by the relevant deadline will be automatically deemed ineligible.

All applications require two referee statements.  Applicants should identify and approach referees well in advance of the relevant deadline.  Referees should know the applicants sufficiently well to provide them with a character reference.



This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No. 847402 .
