Euraxess, a support network for researchers

EURAXESS Researchers in Motion is a unique pan-European initiative delivering information and support services to professional researchers. Backed by the European Union and its Member States, it supports researcher mobility and career development, while enhancing scientific collaboration between Europe and the world. In Spain, this network is centralized in FECYT (Foundation for Science and Technology), which coordinates more than 85 institutions, including IMDEA Water.

IMDEA Water participates in the 8th EURAXESS Conference, which is being held in The Hague. The Conference is a succesful place to network with European colleagues, and to be inspired both by the colleagues and by the speakers and workshops organized. Items which are supposed to include during the Conference are related to: sharing expertise, sharing outcomes from EURAXESS projects such as TOP3, REFLEX and PIPERS, learning more about the different aspects of EURAXESS and their impact and opportunities (Links Officers, new portal, etc), finding out more about how career development fits into the EURAXESS portfolio and if and how you can be active on this topic, gaining knowledge on upcoming challenges (Gender, Diversity, Research integrity.
