IF: Secondments - yes or no?

The IF calls offer the possibility of having a secondment to another institution. This can be a very good possibility to enhance your fellowship, if it makes sense for your career and your scientific project. The decision if or not a secondment makes sense can be discussed with your future supervisor and with your NCP, but to give you some guidance find here the statistics of the IF-2014 call (2015 not available yet).
