The aim of the HOMING programme is to improve the human potential in the R&D sector by financing breakthrough projects designed as postdoctoral fellowships, carried out by young doctors (postdocs) from all over the world (regardless of nationality). Eligible applicants are those young doctors (regardless of nationality) who have had a doctoral degree for not longer than 5 years, where the start of this period is defined by the year of obtaining the degree and the end – by the year preceding the deadline for submitting applications in the competition. The 5-year period may be extended to a maximum of 9 years from obtaining the degree on the terms set down in the competition documentation.

Projects lasting up to 24 months will be funded under the program.

Key Agencies Involved: Foundation for Polish Science (FNP)
