Euraxess - Researchers in motion

A unique paneuropean initiative to provide information and support to professional researchers. Backed by the European Union, member states and associated countries, it supports researcher mobility and career development, while enhancing scientific collaboration between Europe and the world. EURAXESS is also your gateway to Science4Refugees, a Commission's initiative helping refugee researchers find suitable jobs in today's challenging research landscape.



What are the objectives pursued by Euraxess at the European level?

The Euraxess programme aims to increase the attractiveness of Europe for researchers. A project in which our University has been involved since 2012. This European initiative aims to :

  • promote and facilitate the mobility of researchers;
  • help researchers develop their careers;
  • to optimise collaboration between Europe and the world;
  • help researchers refugees to find a job in Europe.

Euraxess at UNamur

The Euraxess program was initiated in our University in 2012 in a continuous improvement process in order to guarantee the quality of the services in place, but also to encourage the researchers' mobility.

It is the Euraxess steering committee that coordinates UNamur's commitment to the European Charter for Researchers and the Researchers' Recruitment Code. This unique document includes 40 principles that must apply to researchers, UNamur and funders. It sets the rights and obligations of each party.

The Euraxess steering committee works in close collaboration with the HR services, the Research Administration (ADRE) and the International Relations Services (SRI)


The Quality Department is in charge of the daily work of the Euraxess steering committee.
