Science4Refugees – Support to highly skilled refugee scientists

The Science4Refugees initiative is directed towards refugees researchers/scientists who have applied for and been granted asylum in a host country, which will enable them to continue their educational path or enter the labour market. Under the header "Science4Refugees" a number of initiatives will be brought together on the EURAXESS portal.

The objective of the call is to scale up existing initiatives (of minimum two years) at the institutional, regional or national level and bring them to a European level. These initiatives will give refugees researchers/scientists the opportunity to develop their knowledge and careers by improving their skills and experience.

Expected impact is to provide financial and employability support to initiatives that support the integration of refugees into their new employment settings and culture, and to prepare refugees for the highly competitive and highly skilled job market. In the medium term, the action aims at supporting research jobs and growth; it will increase the number of highly skilled workers who are sufficiently prepared to access the European labour market by using their newly gained skills and experience through the supported actions.

Total budget: EUR 1 million

Deadline: 30 August 2017
