EURAXESS network project
Welcome Services coordinates the EURAXESS Network Project 2018-2022. The project is funded by Vinnova.
The purpose of the EURAXESS Network Project is to make relevant and present issues within the European EURAXESS network visible in Sweden, and to broaden, expand and develop the Swedish network.
The activities in the project are expected to increase the visibility of Sweden as a research nation and improve the support for researcher mobility.
Welcome Services will be in charge of the Swedish EURAXESS portal, a central source of information about Sweden as a research nation. Active universities and other actors will be presented on the portal as well as available services, research positions and funding opportunities.
The Bridgehead Organization (BHO) in Sweden lies with Vinnova, but Welcome Services is acting BHO and represent Sweden at European level in order to cover the interest in current issues.
Welcome Services coordinated the previous EURAXESS Activity Project, also supported by Vinnova, for the period 2015-2017.
