Other Activity Lines in FP6 Co-operation with
MS, CC and AS - Mobility strategy
Part of initiatives aiming to reinforce human
resources and stimulate a culture of mobility
among both EU and non-EU researchers and host
organisations in MS or AC, e.g. by making
possible to use informatics tools to assist with
the transnational mobility of researchers
  • Pan-European Researchers Mobility Portal
  • Pan-European Network of Mobility Centres

Setting up of mobility centres at national
level in each MS and AC, supported by the
Commission, to offer guidance to researchers on
  • Work permits
  • Job opportunities
  • Salaries and taxation
  • Pension rights
  • Health care
  • Social security
  • Accommodation
  • Day care and schooling

31
A mobility strategy for the ERA
The Pan-European Researchers Mobility Portal
http//europa.eu.int/eracareers
  • General information about research/fellowships,
    grants at EU, international, national and
    regional level
  • Available opportunities and job offers in
    Europes research community
  • Information about legal and administrative
    issues (conditions of entry, social security and
    tax schemes, etc.)
  • Local and tailored assistance through the
    Mobility Centers
