Guide on Labour Market Integration of Refugee Researchers

For the past three years, the OeAD – as part of EURAXESS Austria – has been participating in two EU-funded projects: EURAXESS TOP IV and Bridge for Researchers in Danger Going to Europe Step II – BRiDGE II, which are to serve the integration of refugee researchers in the European labour market.

The project results have now been published in the Guide on Labour Market Integration of Refugee Researchers. The guide provides helpful information for refugee researchers on the integration in the European labour market and tools for staff mentoring refugee researchers.


CARe - Career Advancement for Refugee Researchers in Europe-Project: Country guide Austria.

From June to September 2021, the OeAD in cooperation with the Academic Cooperation Association (ACA) and the German Exchange Service (DAAD) also contributed to the drawing up of the Country guide Austria within the CARe - Career Advancement for Refugee Researchers in Europe-Project.

The CARe country guide for Austria contains systematised relevant information on the national labour market.



With the information platform oead4refugees , the OeAD offers an overview of educational opportunities and initiatives in higher education for refugees. The information is aimed at refugees who are in Austria, who are going through an asylum procedure or who have already completed it, who want to study or who would like to have an educational qualification recognized.



Science4Refugees is an initiative set up to provide research 'refugee-friendly' internships, part-time and full-time jobs, access to the European research community, as well as information and support services on working and living in Europe.
