EURAXESS - Researchers in motion
EURAXESS - Researchers in Motion is unique web portal providing access to a complete range of information and support services for European and non-European researchers wishing to pursue research careers in Europe.
EURAXESS assists researchers in advancing their careers in Europe and supports research organisations in their search for outstanding research talent. EURAXESS is a truly pan-European initiative, supported by thirty-seven participating countries. It provides a single access point to information from all countries including a network of walk-in centres offering personalised assistance to researchers moving to another country.
EURAXESS is a key initiative supporting the European Union's commitment to removing barriers to the free movement of knowledge within Europe, to strengthening cross-border mobility of researchers, students, scientists and academic staff and to providing researchers with better career structures.
The new EURAXESS site combines four major initiatives which support the mobility of researchers in Europe: Jobs, Services, Rights and Links.
