EURAXESS - Researchers in Motion is a pan-European Initiative launched by the European Commission to promote research careers and facilitate the mobility of researchers across Europe.
EURAXESS is a platform for researchers, entrepreneurs, universities and businesses to interact with each other. EURAXESS covers mobility-related topics for researchers and entrepreneurs, and allows universities and businesses to find the right talent, projects and funding.
This portal contains practical information on living and working in Switzerland, job and funding opportunities across Europe, and diverse services for researchers in all fields. The 14 EURAXESS Centres, located at Swiss higher education institutions, help researchers and their family to plan and organize their move to Switzerland, providing assistance in all matters related to mobility.
All services of the EURAXESS Network are free of charge.
