FOR RESEARCHERS

Mobility and research outside Sweden

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.

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.
