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.

Institutions in Austria which give advice and support to researchers and which would like to feature in the EURAXESS project may register as EURAXESS Centres. The registration will allow you institution to be listed under local EURAXESS Centres and be located by researchers from all over the world via the EURAXESS Austria portal.

Furthermore, a membership in the EURAXESS Network enables EURAXESS Centres to participate in a wide range of European activities. Besides the participation in European training and network events, an online platform allows you to access contacts to EURAXESS Centres all over Europe. Participation in European projects and tenders is also possible.

Austrian institutions of higher education and research may join the EURAXESS network by signig the EURAXESS Declaration of Commitment (420.64 KB)
