Welcome to EURAXESS in Sweden,

We provide information and assistance to mobile researchers - by means of this portal and with the support of our national EURAXESS Centres.
The portal contains practical information concerning professional and daily life in Sweden, research news, as well as information about jobs and funding opportunities. The Centres provide assistance in matters related to mobility and help researchers and their families to plan and organize their move.

All services of the EURAXESS network are free of charge.

Watch the video about the portal and get to know how to use it for the best purpose.

Learn about Sweden

Sweden’s population recently passed ten million, almost two million of whom live in the Stockholm area. The country has a total area of 447,420 km2, which makes it the fifth biggest country of Europe. Sweden is a very multicultural country: 15 per cent of Swedes were born in another country, while about one in five children in Sweden have a family with roots in another country. Research and development have had a high priority in Sweden in recent decades. Sweden is one of the countries investing the largest percentage of its Gross Domestic Product in R&D. The high standard of Swedish research is internationally recognised. Independent evaluations consistently give high marks to Swedish researchers and show that Swedish research pursued as part of European Union common programs is of high scientific quality.

Mobility and research

It is said that travel broadens the mind. This rings especially true for researchers. Taking up a research position in another country gives scientists the opportunity to share their knowledge, to learn new approaches and to work with the best minds in their field. As a researcher working in Europe, both you and your employer have rights and obligations. Read more about the Research working environment to the left.

In October 2015, the European Commission launched the Science4Refugees initiative to help refugees who are scientists and researchers find suitable jobs that both improve their own situation and put their skills and experience to good use in Europe's research system. Read more at Science4Refugees.

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.

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.

Charter & Code for Researchers


EURAXESS is also your gateway to Science4Refugees, a Commission's initiative helping refugees who are researchers find suitable jobs in today's challenging research landscape. Part of the initiative, is the Science4Refugees Research Buddies, supporting refugee scientists in finding European researchers to discuss problems with, find solutions and study together, by matching their research field, scientific studies and interests.
