EURAXESS Rights creates the right environment for mobile researchers!
The European Commission is committed to setting high standards for rights of researchers and those of their employers and funders. The ultimate objective of EURAXESS Rights is to create an attractive, open and sustainable European labour market for researchers. The “European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers” set out these rules and obligations.
Both “Charter and the Code” value the importance of mobility whether geographical, intersectoral, or between public and private sectors, as an important means of enhancing scientific knowledge and professional development at any stage of a researcher's career.
To facilitate mobility, the European Commission and its Member States have made significant progress in the implementation of the Scientific Visa Package. It is a vital instrument helping researchers obtain permission to enter, stay and work in the European Union Member States for the purpose of carrying out scientific research. It is designed to make the process of receiving a residence permit easier for researchers.
