The goal of the proposal is to set-up and make operational the Lithuanian node (further referred as Lithuanian Mobility Centre) of the European network of Mobility Centres with a mission of providing information and assistance to mobile researchers and their families that come to Lithuania and outgoing Lithuanian researchers. The Lithuanian Mobility Centre will act as: point of entry for incoming researchers looking for practical information and guidance; service provider providing proximity assistance directly or through signposting to specialised agencies; first information source to outcoming researchers on practical matters and available assistance in other EU and candidate countries. It is proposed to establish one office in the host organisation - Lithuanian Centre for Quality Assessment in Higher Education. Lithuanian Mobility Centre, on the one hand, will act as a service centre, providing services to mobile researchers. In this function, it will identify relevant information sources, structure, translated and adapt information for specific target groups. This information will be placed on the Lithuanian Researcher's Mobility Portal, the main information tool of the Centre. Proximity assistance services will be developed and provided by the Centre staff or signposted to specialised service providers. On the other hand, Lithuanian Mobility Centre perform the functions of bridgehead organisation: creating informal local network with hosting institutions and other organisations, developing and maintaining links with European Mobility Network, ensuring sustainability of the Centre activity, etc. It is proposed to create mobility network consisting of actors related to the mobility of researchers at national level. This will ensure mutual understanding and exchange of good practice and experience between Universities, Research Institutes, industry and other governmental and non-governmental institutions related to the issue of the mobility of #'
