Workshop overview:

EURAXESS is a thriving network with members from 40 countries in the EU and beyond. The initiative is a collaboration between the EC and member nations to create a more favourable environment for researchers to move freely in the European Research Area and support individual researchers to be mobile. Its remit is now expanding to embrace researchers’ career development and Vitae has recently been announced as the first national EURAXESS Career Development Centre (www.vitae.ac.uk/EURAXESSUK-CDC). Two EURAXESS-funded projects currently on-going to advance career development resources for the network are PIPERS and REFLEX. This workshop will give an overview of the aims of these projects with more detail on expected outcomes from PIPERS.

Workshop topics:

  • Researcher development support in Europe
  • Frameworks for researcher development
  • New online tool for researcher development.

Themes covered:

  • New approaches to enabling researchers to reach their potential and make powerful career choices
  • New and interesting ways of supporting mobility - international, intersectoral, interdisciplinary and virtual mobility


  • Learn about projects to progress researcher development support in Europe
  • Give feedback on plans for a new online tool for researchers
  • Find out how your institution can be involved in the EURAXESS network.
