The European Research Area (ERA) priorities underline the importance of an open labour market for researchers. This includes the removal of barriers to researchers mobility, training, and attractive careers. The ERA Mobility and Career Days, by building on the support of the members of the EURAXESS network, will help making a career in an European research institution more visible and hence attractive, both for researchers in Europe who are facing career decisions and for those who are currently outside Europe and might consider relocating to Europe to develop their research careers in Europe. This action aims at promoting jobs and growth by providing information on research careers, jobs and funding opportunities and support services to students and researchers on the ground. The career and mobility day will focus on countries where jobs and funding is scarce, in this respect information on European opportunities will be crucial for the young researchers’ generation. The event shall be open to researchers from all fields. This action will support activities of the EURAXESS Service Network represented by EURAXESS Bridgehead organisations to organise in collaboration with research universities or institutions an information day/event that addresses mobility and career development of (young) researchers and students to maximize the career prospects.
The proposed action aims at a better knowledge about European job and funding opportunities mainly published on the EURAXESS Jobs portal and personalised assistance tools such as EURAXESS. In the medium term, the action aims at supporting jobs and growth and will contribute directly to the Horizon 2020 objective of cross-national and international circulation of researchers; it will increase the number of researchers who have access to research infrastructures through Union support and the number of excellent researchers overall. An additional impact should be to convince young people to embark on research careers with mobility.
