Join the EURAXESS network!

Internationally mobile researchers need strong networks to successfully pursue a career in research. However, those who advise and support them at Austrian institutions of higher education and research institutions also require networks.

In the context of the EU-wide initiative EURAXESS – Researchers in Motion, EURAXESS Austria provides a networking platform for researcher advisors.

Further information can be obtained from info@oead.at.


EURAXESS Hubs will mobilise a critical mass of both experienced and less experienced EURAXESS Bridgehead Organisations, at tailored levels of involvement, to launch three pilot EURAXESS hubs and then share their experience with the network. EURAXESS hubs will be integrated digital platforms for thematic, cross-border, competence-based collaboration of EURAXESS Centres (ESCs) and other stakeholders, such as multiplier and enabler organisations outside of the EURAXESS network, in engaging and providing services to researchers, research organisations and other ESCs.

EURAXESS TOP – Advice for researchres and networking opportunities in Europe

TOP is the acronym for "Enhancing The Outreach and effectiveness of the EURAXESS network Partners". The objective of the EURAXESS TOP projects is to strengthen the EURAXESS Network.

The project EURAXESS TOP I (duration 2010-2011) was coordinated by Germany, the TOP II (duration 2012-2014) by Spain, the TOP III (duration 2015-2018) by Hungary and TOP IV (duration 2018-2021, extended until Feb. 2022) by Greece.

Within EURAXESS TOP IV the OeAD has been part of a consortium from 40 countries, covering the whole Euraxess network and therewith maximizing the impact for the long-lasting benefit of the research community. The OeAD was the leader of task 3.4 Refugee initiatives. The task included research on the needs of displaced researchers and scientists in Europe and the creation of a framework of actions that will support the most efficient use of available resources to support integration on local as well as national and European levels.
