The mobility of researchers constitutes a crucial element in the realisation of the European Research Area (ERA). Several models for mobility schemes are used in Europe (at national and European levels), covering a large scale and scope, from the early-stage researcher to the recognised/established researcher and beyond. They are open to researchers from all over the world regardless of their nationality.
The main objectives of the information session are:
- Raising awareness on mobility and career opportunities in Europe, with a special focus on Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions and the ERC Grants.
- Stimulating scientific cooperation between USA and Europe
- Helping to connect researchers from both continents with a view to expand the EURAXESS Links North America Community
