Should the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) be considered as part of the non-academic sector, hence eligible to host a non-academic placement?

The legal status that the EC has assigned to the organisation during the validation process has to be checked on the Funding and Tenders Opportunities Portal.

In addition, please note that non-academic placements can only take place in EU MS or HE AC, as clarified on p. 11 of the MSCA PF 2022 Guide for applicants.
