RESPIRE 4 Host Application and Web Registry

This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant agreement No 847462

Within the framework of the RESPIRE4 Research Fellowship programme in respiratory science, a brand new RESPIRE4 Web Host Registry platform will be launched in early 2020 with a list of pre-registered host centres, with the aim to:

  • Facilitate fellowship applicants' search for suitable host centres; and
  • Help ensure that selected fellows will enjoy attractive working conditions (e.g. contract) and a suitable working environment (e.g. supervision, facilities/infrastructure, career development) to undertake their research project in the respiratory field.

This process builds on the experience of the previous RESPIRE2 and RESPIRE3 Web Host Registries, but it has been further developed to reflect the specific new requirements of the RESPIRE4 programme, in line with EU co-funding under Horizon 2020.

Host centres in Europe and also from outside of Europe can potentially participate either through European fellowships and/or Global fellowships. Please consult the Annex I for further information.

Why pre-register as a RESPIRE4 Host Centre?

  • To feature your host centre on the RESPIRE4 Web Host Registry and to be potentially contacted by prospective applicants to develop a joint application.
  • To participate in the RESPIRE4 programme, as only pre-registered centres can potentially host Marie Skłodowska-Curie RESPIRE4 fellowship recipients.
