Two keys to enhancing researchers' mobility, The European researcher's mobility portal : the European network of mobility centres

Funded under: FP7-TRANSPORT


Most economic and administrative borders in Europe have been dismantled and its political and cultural boundaries are gradually converging. This twofold opening of frontiers provides potentially unprecedented opportunities, not only for researchers looking to advance their career in another European country, but also for scientific organizations in search of international talent. However, more needs to be done to optimize such opportunities.
With this in mind, and in the context of its Mobility Strategy for the European Research Area, the European Commission has launched the European Researcher's Mobility Portal. With more than 31 partner countries, this online tool represents a gateway to a continent of opportunities for researchers and research bodies alike. By providing researchers with more information on living conditions and career opportunities in European countries, the Commission hopes to make research in the European Union more attractive.
