What is EURAXESS?
EURAXESS is a unique European Research Area (ERA) initiative providing access to a complete range of information and support services for European and non-European researchers wis-hing to pursue research careers in Europe. It offers access to the job market; assists resear-chers in advancing their careers in another European country and supports research organisa-tions in their search for outstanding research talent. EURAXESS is a truly pan-European initia-tive, supported by 40 participating countries across Europe.
The EURAXESS portal 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 five hundred Service Centres located in 40 European countries. These Centres help researchers and their family to plan and organise their move to a foreign country.

A team of well-informed staff is at their service.
