Become a Euraxess Network member



"EURAXESS - Researchers in Motion" is one of the key initiatives to enhance researcher careers and mobility. Given its overall aim of contributing to the further development and consolidation of the European Research Area (ERA) and, in particular, of making Europe more attractive to researchers, EURAXESS is backed at national political and institutional level. The European Commission (EC) supports the activities of the EURAXESS Service Network for its personalised dimension and the direct contact with researchers, thus fulfilling the goal of making Europe attractive for researchers from all over the world.


Joining the EURAXESS Network?

To become a member of the EURAXESS Service Network (hereafter referred to as "EURAXESS Network") your organisation must subscribe to the Declaration of Commitment and thereby agree with the mission of the EURAXESS Network to facilitate the building of a common European labour market of researchers by providing free, timely and high-quality support to facilitate the relocation and career development of researchers in Europe.


Typology and tasks of the Euraxess members

The ECP is in contact with its national BHO and ESCs from which it obtains assistance and support. ECPs support the staff of their own institutions by providing assistance to incoming and out-going researchers. When attending the EURAXESS biennale Conference , the ECP represents its country.

A potential ECP achieves membership of the EURAXESS Network through the following process:

  1. Application to the national BHO;
  2. Approval by the BHO and signature of the Declaration of Commitment by the applicant;
  3. Countersignature by the BHO and, if required by the responsible Ministry or Entity;
  4. Notification by the BHO to the EC.
