Research is formalized curiosity. It is poking and prying with a purpose.
The EURAXESS - Researchers in Motion web-site is a joint initiative of the European Commission and the countries participating in the European Union's Framework Programme for Research.
EURAXESS - Researchers in Motion is a one-stop shop for researchers seeking to advance their careers and personal development by moving to other countries. In addition to the information on training and jobs, this electronic gateway is the entry point to a wealth of practical information on living, working and relaxing in the European countries involved.
The EURAXESS web-site is composed of four main sections devoted to four specific initiatives for researchers:
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.
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.
A team of well-informed staff is at their service.
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.
It also provides interactive web tools promoting networking amongst European researchers living abroad.
EURAXESS Links is established in the US, Japan, China, Singapore and India.
