MOVE - EV mobility fellowships

The purpose of the MOVE European Mobility Fellowship is to foster collaboration between the members of different European EV Societies and Networks. The Fellowship will enable Early Career Researchers (the applicants) to travel to another lab in Europe (the hosts) to develop both their technical skills and enlarge their own professional networks.


The Fellowship is intended for technicians, PhD students and early-stage postdoctoral researchers (≤ five years, excluding career breaks). As a prerequisite, applicants will need to be members of GSEV and the head of the hosting lab will be a current member of the National EV Society or Network of the host country.


The Fellowship will cover travel and subsistence (but not bench fees) to a maximum value of 2000€, to work in a host lab at an academic institution in a different European country for a time period between one and three months.


GSEV intends to award three Fellowships in this round. Applications are possible on a continuous basis. It is anticipated that successful applicants will be informed within one month of the closing date and will be able to plan their travel immediately after that. The Fellowship funds will be paid into the recipients’ bank account on production of a completed expenses form together with suitable receipts for travel and subsistence, at the end of the placement.


Successful applicants will be expected to write a short summary of the work they carried out and record a short video detailing how the fellowship benefited them, which will be published on GSEV webpage and may be used for publicity purposes on GSEV social media and other means.
