EURAXESS outreach to Industry SEAC-4-2015

Eu call opportunities


Research Participant Portal is your entry point for electronic administration of EU-funded research and innovation projects


The EURAXESS initiative with its four pillars is an important tool for the development and implementation of our policies on researchers’ mobility and careers thus contributing to the completion of the ERA and to the implementation of the Responsible Research and Innovation field. Two specific challenges are tackled in this topic targeting an open and transparent labour market for researchers by outreaching to industry and by building a human resources strategy for researchers.


This action aims at providing EURAXESS service centres with tools to increase the uptake/use of the EURAXESS portals and services by the industry sector. Initiatives shall be supported that have proven to increase the level of interaction of industry with EURAXESS portals and services for the benefit of Responsible Research and Innovation. This topic will support strategic activities to enhance collaboration with industry by EURAXESS Services Network’s members that have signed the Declaration of Commitment. This shall include special IT applications for the national EURAXESS portals and mapping of specific needs of the industry sector. Activities such as trainings, seminars, networking and updating of national EURAXESS homepages shall also be part of this action. In this context information and guidance on Responsible Research and Innovation shall be provided for researchers & employers, taking-up and further the information and training material produced by the RRI Toolkit (Seventh Framework programme RRI TOOLKIT project). In cooperation with relevant projects and initiative, EURAXESS shall provide guidance on how making research open access can be beneficial for the career development of researchers as well as offering benefits to industry. Gender equality shall also be taken into account in the activities. Interoperability between national EURAXESS portals and the European one (especially EURAXESS Jobs) shall be foreseen.

The Commission considers that proposals requesting a contribution from the EU of between EUR 0.5 and 1 million would allow this specific challenge to be addressed appropriately. Nonetheless, this does not preclude submission and selection of proposals requesting other amounts.
