Mobility headlines

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.

The new European 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.
