The mission of the EURAXESS Network is to provide assistance to researchers and talents to circulate and collaborate across borders, sectors and disciplines, while facilitating open, transparent, merit-based recruitment and attractive careers within the European Knowledge Sustainable Society.

The EURAXESS Network serves as an implementation tool for the European Research Area, facilitating researchers’ mobility in and beyond Europe, while translating policies into everyday working practice and promoting transnational cooperation and common standards for researchers and institutions in Europe.

Video introduction


A EURAXESS Centre provides information, advice and support both to the researchers and to the departments and units within their universities. Today, there are more than 500 centres in 40 different countries. All services are free of charge.

Centres in Sweden

The Swedish portal contains specific information about Sweden, research overview and funding, facts about life and work, pre-arrival information, insurances, health and medical care etc.

Welcome Services at the University of Gothenburg is one of 14 EURAXESS Centres in Sweden.

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 Projects, also supported by Vinnova, for the period 2015-2017.
