The Swedish network consists of Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) who work actively with support for researcher mobility. The members of the network meet two-three times a year and exchange useful information, share reports from study visits, conferences etc. and get the latest new from the Swedish BHO.

There are sixteen EURAXESS Centres (ESC) in Sweden. They all follow the EURAXESS Declaration of Commitment (DoC), which means providing free personalised assistance in matters related to mobility. Find your nearest ESC in Sweden.  Below you will find information about each university that has a ESC.

The Bridge Head Organisation (BHO) of EURAXESS Sweden is Vinnova; a government agency under the Ministry of Enterprise and Innovation, and the national contact authority for the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation. Vinnova stimulates collaborations between companies, universities and other higher education institutions, public services, civil society and other actors. The activities also focus on strengthening international cooperation.

Welcome Services at the University of Gothenburg coordinates the EURAXESS Network Project 2018-2022. The project is funded by Vinnova.

The purpose of the EURAXESS Network Project is to make relevant and present issues within the European EURAXESS network visible in Sweden, and to broaden, expand and develop the Swedish network.

The activities in the project are expected to increase the visibility of Sweden as a research nation and improve the support for researcher mobility.

Welcome Services is in charge of the Swedish EURAXESS portal; a central source of information about Sweden as a research nation. For more information please contact Birgitta Karlén, Welcome Services (

The BHO function in Sweden is shared, and, together with Vinnova, Welcome Services attends meetings, conferences and study visits at the European level, in order to cover the interest in current issues. For more information please contact Karin Hellqvist, Welcome Services (

Welcome Services coordinated the previous EURAXESS Activity Projects, also supported by Vinnova, for the period 2015-2017.

Network activities in 2022
