Latvian Researchers Mobility Centre establishing and operation

Objective

The knowledge-based economy and RTD ask for an appropriate mobilisation of human resources. The researchers' mobility within the ERA will be one of effective solutions for this task. The Latvian Researchers Mobility Centre (Latvian RMC) operating within the ERA-MORE will be organised at the Latvian State Institute of Wood Chemistry, which is contractor of project RESMOB-LATVIA. To improve the situation and conditions regarding researchers' mobility, during project realization the following results will be achieved: establishing of the specialised Latvian Researchers Mobility Portal (Latvian RMP) in English and Latvian acting in cooperation with European RMP; establishing of a national-scale mobile researchers support system to provide personal assistance through the central Help desk or through advisory bodies with trained personnel and contact persons circle on the site (universities, scientific centres, etc.); organising of an information dissemination channels around the Latvian RMP; preparation and continuous up-dating of information dossiers, which will reflect all issues regarding incoming, outgoing and returning mobile researchers (legal and administrative regulation, daily life issues); popularisation of the targets and activities of ERA-MORE in society, especially in researchers' community. To support the achieving of these goals, appropriate market and promotion activities towards researchers and employers will be carried out to recruit new users of the offered services and partners of co-operation. A national steering group, composed of intersectional experts, will be set up to analyse the situation of researchers' mobility and its obstacles, and the preparation of recommendations for policy makers and institutions responsible for the policy realization. The public relation activities and Latvian conference on mobility issues will allow a dialogue on the whole spectrum of questions regarding mobility. Duration: 36 months.
