European Researchers' Mobility portal now online
The European Commission has just launched a new web portal
to create a more favourable environment for the career development
of researchers in the European Research Area by providing them with
the information they need to get mobile.
Researcher's Mobility portal provides links to hundreds
of research organisations offering grants, fellowships, training
opportunities and job openings across Europe and internationally.
It also allows researchers to post their CVs and research organisations
to publish their vacancies – all free of charge.
The portal aims to become a one-stop shop for researchers seeking
to advance their careers and personal development by moving to other
countries. In addition to the information on training and jobs it
provides, the portal contains a wealth of practical information
on living, working and relaxing in the 33 European countries involved.
The European Researcher's Mobility portal is a unique web resource
because it overcomes a recognised obstacle in the cross-border mobility
of researchers: a lack of information on available opportunities.
By making the research opportunities in Europe more visible, the
European Commission hopes that the portal will help enhance the
attractiveness of the EU for research talent from all over the world.
The portal comes in the wider context of the Commission's human
resources measures aimed at removing obstacles to mobility and helphing
Europe develop its brainpower.
