Welcome to the EURAXESS - Researchers in Motion web-site, a joint initiative of the European Commission and the countries participating in the European Union's Framework Programme for Research.

EURAXESS - Researchers in Motion is a one-stop shop for researchers seeking to advance their careers and personal development by moving to other countries. In addition to the information on training and jobs, this electronic gateway is the entry point to a wealth of practical information on living, working and relaxing in the European countries involved.

The EURAXESS web-site is composed of four main sections devoted to four specific initiatives for researchers:

•EURAXESS Jobs is a stress-free recruitment tool where no charges apply.

Researchers can find a wealth of constantly updated information on job vacancies, funding opportunities and fellowships throughout Europe. Posting their CV will allow recruiters to find them.

Companies or research institutes can post vacancies free of charge and search for the CVs of international top-notch researchers.

Users can also directly access the national EURAXESS portals of the partner countries which contain information on research job and funding opportunities, as well as on personalised services in each country.

•EURAXESS Services is a network of more than two hundred Service Centres located in 37 European countries.

These Centres help researchers and their family to plan and organise their move to a foreign country. This free personalised assistance helps researchers tackle issues such as accommodation, visa and work permits, language lessons, schools for their children, social security and medical care.

A team of well-informed staff is at their service.

•EURAXESS Rights provides all information regarding the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers.

The Charter sets out the rights and duties of researchers, as well as research- and funding.

The Code aims at ensuring equal treatment of all researchers in Europe and increases transparency in their recruitment.

•EURAXESS Links is a network for European researchers working outside Europe. Here they can find extensive information about research in Europe, European research policies, career opportunities in Europe, international collaboration and trans-national mobility.

It also provides interactive web tools promoting networking amongst European researchers living abroad.

EURAXESS Links is established in the US, Japan, China, Singapore and India.

The electronic newsletter EURAXESS is available on the EURAXESS web-sites and keeps researchers, research institutions, universities and industry informed on the latest developments.

The EURAXESS - Researchers in Motion project is managed by:
•The European Commission

•Directorate-General for Research and Innovation

•Directorate B "European Research Area"


On Tuesday, November 17, the webmail server at the University of East Anglia was hacked and a file including over 1,000 emails sent from or sent to members of the Climatic Research Unit at the university was stolen. The emails were posted on several public websites, although the breaking into of computers and releasing private information is illegal, and posting private correspondence without permission is unethical.

India will never accept legally binding emission cuts at Copenhagen, Environment Minister Jairam Ramesh told Parliament Thursday, but he did say the government plans to reduce India's level of "emission intensity" by 20 to 25 percent compared with 2005 levels. This is the first time that India has offered to meet any type of numeric emissions goal in the fight against global warming.

Por iniciativa de um grupo de pais de pessoas com deficiência e de técnicos com serviço prestado na área da reabilitação, foi criada em 14 de Março de 1985 a AFID, Associação Nacional de Famílias para a Integração da Pessoa com Deficiência, cuja actividade assenta, actualmente, no apoio a pessoas com desvantagem física, mental e social, com dificuldade de inserção, crianças, jovens, idosos e outros grupos desfavorecidos.

ICT-Security Making eGovernment and the internet safer for all!
25 - 26 March 2010

On December 17 and 18, the world leaders will converge on Copenhagen in an attempt to seal a political global climate deal. Any agreement that is reached will be the basis of a treaty that will govern greenhouse gas emissions after the first commitment period of the Kyoto Protocol expires at the end of 2012.

Plano de Contingência

Like many universities around the world, the University of Edinburgh has pledged to cut carbon emissions. As The Guardian reported, the university has concluded that the only way to reach its targets is to move beyond such straightforward measures as redesigning buildings for more efficient energy use. the university is now asking students and faculty members many personal, detailed questions to develop strategies on such issues as how many conferences faculty members use air travel to attend and what students eat. The use of videoconferencing instead of air travel, lower consumption of meat, and other measures are being discussed. One delicate issue is the calculation that international students -- due to air travel -- have a significant impact on total carbon emissions.

O Web site “Sínteses da legislação da UE” apresenta os principais aspectos da legislação da União Europeia (UE) de uma forma concisa, acessível e objectiva.

A Rede de Universidades da Terceira Idade (RUTIS) prepara-se para lançar um computador pensado para os mais velhos. Inicialmente, o modelo vai estar apenas disponível para os alunos das Universidades Seniores e, a partir de Março, para qualquer pessoa com mais de 50 anos.
“Não queremos colocá-lo (já) no mercado, porque o preço iria subir. Ainda estamos a acertar alguns detalhes, mas custará menos de 500 euros”, explicou à agência Lusa Luís Jacob, presidente da RUTIS.O projecto, anunciado em Junho, foi desenvolvido pelas Universidades Seniores, em parceria com a Microsoft, JP Sá Couto (responsável pelos “Magalhães”) e pela empresa de informática Inforlândia. Vai ser apresentado hoje (4 de Novembro) no Congresso Mundial de Envelhecimento Activo, em Santarém.“Os nossos alunos ouviram falar no Magalhães e no e-escolas e pediram para ter um computador”, explicou Luís Jacob.O ecrã deste computador terá 15 polegadas (um tamanho frequente em muitos portáteis, mas substancialmente maior que o do Magalhães) e teclas mais espaçadas do que é habitual. “Pensávamos que seria adequado um ecrã maior, com 17 polegadas, mas os testes que fizemos indicaram-nos que os idosos preferiam um ecrã mais pequeno. Caso contrário, o computador também seria maior e mais pesado”, observa Luís Jacob.Para além disso, existe a possibilidade de ter um rato especial: “É um rato maior, com o molde de uma mão, mais fácil de agarrar, porque alguns idosos têm problemas que tornam difícil manusear os ratos normais”.O computador terá ainda conteúdos para seniores – um curso de informática, um software para quem dificuldades de visão e links directos para sites de interesse para os mais velhos – e a RUTIS também está a estudar a possibilidade de compra a prestações.(Público/LUSA)

Mais uma edição do Plano Inclinado. Desta vez sobre o tema, Educação e Ciência.Apenas quero realçar, e lamentar, mais uma manifestação de arrogância académica por parte de Fátima Bonifácio, ao declarar que o problema do ensino superior está nos alunos. Que não faz sentido avaliar o mérito dos professores universitários, que devem ocupar a cátedra vitalícia e negar aos mais aptos e jovens professores a ascensão na carreira, por falta de vagas. Que as ciências da educação e comunicação não servem de nada ao ensino universitário, pois o que é importante é o conhecimento científico do docente e não a sua aptidão para o transmitir. Enfim, afirmações e confirmações que já são do meu tempo de universidade e que eu pensava que estavam em extinção. Evidentemente que os alunos só atrapalham mas o pior é que o financiamento das universidades depende do número de alunos.

Europe boosts budgets of national fellowship programmes
Transnational mobility opens up new horizons for researchers. The attractiveness of Europe for the best researchers and their career development has become a major concern for European competitiveness. The €140 million, injected by the European Commission during 2008 and 2009 as part of a new action will generate about 3.400 fellowships for researchers. By 2013, the end of the Seventh RTD Framework Programme, it is expected that 14.000 researchers will have benefitted from this action.
