Marie Sklodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Research Fellowships (RESPIRE)


The RESPIRE3 and RESPIRE4 projects receive funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant agreements No 713406 and No 847462 (MSCA COFUND scheme).

The RESPIRE programme provides postdoctoral research fellowships to researchers with the potential to become the leaders of tomorrow in the respiratory field. It offers 2-year European Fellowships or 3-year Global Fellowships to candidates (with a PhD or at least 4 years of full-time research experience) from any discipline with a project in respiratory research.

A list of pre-registered host centres is now available on the RESPIRE4 Web Host Registry platform. New host centres can still apply to be pre-registered via the Host Online Application Form therefore new centres will continue to be added to Web Host Registry.

The 1st RESPIRE4 call with extended deadline of 1 July 2020 is closed. The 2nd call will open in early 2021 with deadline 1 May 2021.

The Application Guidelines and FAQ are related to the 1st call. The updated version will be available when the 2nd call opens by early February 2021. In the meantime, an updated overview of RESPIRE can also be downloaded here.
