International Postdoctoral Fellowship Programme (COFAS) was a postdoc programme that ran 2009-2018, aimed at creating opportunities for collaboration and exchange of knowledge between countries.

COFAS was a programme for postdoctoral researchers, aimed at contributing to increased internationalisation and researcher mobility. It was run by Forte in 2009-2018, supported by Marie Curie Actions within the EU Framework Programme, Horizon 2020. The goal of COFAS was to promote the international researcher mobility and research cooperation within the health, working life and welfare areas. COFAS also provided a unique opportunity for professional development of individual researchers.
