EURAXESS Catalonia is a support platform for researchers, facilitating the mobility and hosting of researchers and their families, as well as promoting opportunities for their professional development.
The Agency for Management of University and Research (AGAUR) coordinates the local contact points from the Euraxess Catalonia network, formed by 50 affiliated organizations of the research and university system in Catalonia, who are responsible for the related legal procedures for the students/researchers work permits or short stays in Catalonia.
This iniciative is part of the European strategy for mobility of researchers within the European Research Area (ERA), through the Spanish Mobility Network and European network EURAXESS, with more than 250 centers located in 40 European countries. This network is intended to be a guide for supporting researchers in their professional stay and hosting them in each state or region, including a set of opportunities for their professional development.
AGAUR was awarded with the seal 'HR Excellence in Research' by the European Commission for its commitment to the continuous improvement in the application of the principles of 'the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for Recruitment of Researchers (C & C)'. This accreditation recognizes the excellence of the Agency in procurement procedures and "fair and transparent" assessment, as well as its commitment to continuous improvement of human resources policies for research staff.
