Supporting your researchers - Toolkits to support your institution and your individual researchers' engagement with employers and to promote intersectoral mobility

This workshop will reveal the findings of research undertaken as part of EURAXESS, an Horizon 2020 funded project aiming to improve intersectoral mobility. This research has been undertaken from researcher, institution and employer perspective and includes a pan-European survey and literature review. This research will lead to the development of two toolkits, one for researchers and one for institutions which will include practical resources to address the talent pipeline.

This workshop will:

  • Reveal the outcomes of 3 European literature reviews examining intersectoral mobility from the perspective of employers, institutions and researchers
  • Reveal the outcomes of 3 European surveys examining intersectoral mobility from the same group of stakeholders but also considering an additional survey examining the views of researchers now in non-academic careers
  • Consider how we can support institutions in career guidance for researchers
  • Explore the new resources emerging from the EURAXIND project
  • Allow EURAXESS representatives from UK institutions the opportunity to strengthen their network through practice sharing and collaboration

About you – This workshop is for representatives of EURAXESS institutions with an interest in the topic of intersectoral mobility
