EURAXESS: Global links in research

The European Commission has launched the EURAXESS Links project, which aims to maintain the link between Europe and European researchers, scientists and scholars working abroad, as they are an important resource for European research and for stimulating scientific cooperation between Europe and their host countries.
If the EU wants to reach its target of spending 3 % of GDP on research and development it will need to create at least 1 million new research jobs. As global competition for the best research talent continues to grow, a significant number of European researchers are choosing to work outside Europe.
EURAXESS Links provides information about European research and research policy, and opportunities for research funding, international collaboration and transnational mobility. It is becoming a vital networking tool for European researchers working outside Europe, and non-Europeans hoping to pursue a research career within Europe. It has so far been launched in China, India, Japan, Singapore and the United States, and membership is free.
Members of the network are kept informed about EU research policies and made aware of career and collaboration opportunities in Europe. The multidisciplinary network involves researchers at all stages of their careers: it allows them to stay connected amongst themselves and with Europe, ensuring that they are recognised as an important resource for the European Research Area (ERA), whether they remain abroad or choose to return.
EURAXESS is a pan-European initiative, supported by 40 participating countries across Europe. Through its portal it provides a single access point to information across all countries, and personalised assistance is on offer from more than 500 staff working in the 200 service centres.
