EURAXESS - Researchers in Motion is a unique pan-European initiative delivering information and support services to researchers at all levels, from those in the earliest stages of their research career, including students, to established professionals in the field. Backed by the European Union, member states and associated countries, it supports researcher mobility and career development, while enhancing scientific collaboration between Europe and the world.
