EURAXESS – Researchers in Motion is a unique pan-European initiative, providing access to a complete range of information and support services to researchers wishing to pursue their research careers and mobility in Europe. All EURAXESS services are free of charge.

The EURAXESS network is composed of 502 EURAXESS centers in 40 member countries around the world. The primary task of the centers is research mobility consultancy. Euraxess services can assist mobile researchers and their families in every step of their move, starting in their home country and continuing until they have settled in a new one. The customizable service provides free support for solving practical issues, such as accommodation, visas and work permit, language courses, schooling, health or medical care. Information about several topics is available online, collected on the central EURAXESS portal, or on the website of the member state.

Databases of the central EURAXESS portal collect and announce current job opportunities of countless research organizations ; the scholarship database contains fresh research fellowships, and the partnership database contains partnership offers. Companies and research institutes can publish their vacancies and search in the CVs of more than 15.000 registered researchers. The websites of the member states complete the central portal with the country-specific information.
