Increasing industry engagement with the EURAXESS Network

“Although the number of researchers in the EU has been increasing since 2000 at a faster rate than in the United States and Japan, we still lag behind when it comes to the share of researchers in the workforce.” Commissioner Maire Geoghegan-Quinn 

The EURAXIND project aims to strengthen relationships between industry and academia by increasing employer engagement with the existing EURAXESS networks through expertise, practical toolkits, benchmarking surveys and workshops. EURAXIND will provide opportunities for collaborations and strategic partnerships, and promote the recruitment of highly skilled researchers into all employment sectors.
