What is EURAXESS ?

"EURAXESS - Researchers in Motion" is a 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 is an initiative, supported by 40 participating countries across Europe. EURAXESS is a pan-European key initiative in supporting the commitment to removing the barriers to 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 EURAXESS web-site is composed of four main sections devoted to four specific initiatives for researchers:

EURAXESS Jobs is a stress-free recruitment tool where no charges apply. Researchers can find a wealth of constantly updated information on job vacancies, funding opportunities and fellowships throughout Europe. Posting their CV will allow recruiters to find them. Companies or research institutes can post vacancies free of charge and search for the CVs of international top-notch researchers. Users can also directly access the national EURAXESS portals of the partner countries which contain information on research job and funding opportunities, as well as on personalised services in each country.

EURAXESS Services is a network of more than two hundred Service Centres located in 37 European countries. These Centres help researchers and their family to plan and organise their move to a foreign country. This free personalised assistance helps researchers tackle issues such as accommodation, visa and work permits, language lessons, schools for their children, social security and medical care.

EURAXESS Rights provides all information regarding the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers. The Charter sets out the rights and duties of researchers, as well as research- and funding. The Code aims at ensuring equal treatment of all researchers in Europe and increases transparency in their recruitment.

EURAXESS Links is a network for European researchers working outside Europe. Here they can find extensive information about research in Europe, European research policies, career opportunities in Europe, international collaboration and trans-national mobility. It also provides interactive web tools promoting networking amongst European researchers living abroad.
