Human Resources Excellence in Research
EURAXESS Rights aims at better employment and working conditions for researchers throughout Europe, thereby helping to enhance the attractiveness of European research careers. One of the cornerstones of EURAXESS Rights is the implementation of the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers. The Human Resources Strategy for Researchers supports the implementation of the "Charter & Code" principles and provides for the award of the 'HR Excellence in Research' logo.
Pensions for Researchers
Researchers are a higly skilled and mobile workforce. However, because of their mobility, gaps can arise in their social security protection and the transfer of their pension rights. In addition, there is no clear, adequate information available about these rights. Therefore, the European Commission is addressing these issue on both a policy and pratical level.
Non-EU national, or also called "third country national", researchers have several possibilities to enter the European Union for work. The Scientific Visa Package, adopted in 2005, aims to facilitate third country researchers' entry conditions.
