Portal Europeo para la Movilidad de Investigadores

Un servicio completamente promocionado por la Comisión Europea para la movilidad de investigadores de la Unión Europea. http://ec.europa.eu/euraxess

The Portal is a one-stop shop for researchers seeking to advance their careers and personal development by moving to other countries.

The European Researcher’s Mobility Portal

Welcome to the European Researcher’s Mobility Portal, a joint initiative of the European Commission and the 34countries participating in the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for Research

The Portal 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 it provides, this electronic gateway is the entry point to a wealth of practical information on living, working and relaxing in the European countries involved, through the widening network of the national mobility portals complementing it (currently 31).

Three main types of information are available:

  • Fellowships/Grants
  • Research Job Vacancies
  • Practical Information

Search can be performed according to country, organisation, and research field.

Marie Curie funding and job opportunities are announced on this Portal too.

This Portal allows mobile researchers to post their CVs free of charge.

In addition to that, it is also a stress-free recruitment tool for academic institutions, private research organisations and public research bodies, both within and outside Europe. On it, indeed, they can view the CVs of top-notch researchers and publish their vacancies – all free of charge.

An increasing number of third-countries are also coming on-line, with Australia the latest to launch its own national mobility portal. More portals for non-European partner countries are in the pipeline.

The Portal also provides links to local ERA-MORE mobility centres, which assist researchers on a one-to-one basis before, during and after a training period abroad.

The electronic newsletter «Europe4Researchers» is also available on the Portal and keeps researchers, research institutions, universities and industry informed of the latest developments.

The current access to the different information providers is being permanently expanded and updated by the Members of the Steering Group Mobility in the 34 participating countries, by the European Commission – Directorate General for Research, and by other stakeholders within the research community and based on quality guidelines and principles defined in the commitment for Quality Assurance.

The project is managed by:

  • The European Commission
  • Directorate-General for Research
  • Directorate C «European Research Area: knowledge economy»
