Researchers get new improved information website
The European Commission launches a new website for researchers today. EURAXESS – Researchers in motion will provide researchers with easy access to information in four main areas:
EURAXESS Services: information for mobile researchers
EURAXESS Jobs: on-line researchers' vacancies and funding opportunities
EURAXESS Rights: European Researchers' Charter and Code implementation
EURAXESS Links: networking of European researchers abroad and third-country researchers in Europe
The new website is being launched on the fifth anniversary of the European Researcher's Mobility Portal, which forms the basis for the new site and its expanded services.
The UK is a strong participant in the European programme that supports researchers who want to carry out their work in another country. Latest figures show that the programme supports 674 researchers from around the world working in Britain and 113 British researchers are working elsewhere.
The Marie Curie programme has made a short promotional video, which revises some basic chemical properties – it can be viewed here.
