Call for proposals - Trans-national collaboration among EURAXESS members on topics related to the Innovation Union FP7-PEOPLE-2012-EURAXESS-IU Closed!


This action will support activities by members of the EURAXESS Services Network addressing strategic issues related to the implementation of the Innovation Union. Relevant Innovation Union Commitments to be addressed are:

  • training of a sufficient number of researchers to meet national R&D targets and promotion of attractive employment conditions in public research institutions;
  • removing obstacles to mobility and cross-border co-operation through a common approach including on the following topics: quality of doctoral training, attractive employment conditions and gender balance in research careers, mobility across countries and sectors, open recruitment in public research institutions, comparable research career structures and the creation of European supplementary pension funds;
  • ensuring that leading academics, researchers and innovators reside and work in Europe and attracting a sufficient number of highly skilled third country nationals to stay in Europe.


Activities should be original and innovative. They should be focused on achieving concrete and clearly identified objectives. Projects should clearly valorise the different competences of the consortium partners; interaction with external stakeholders is desirable. They can foresee the use of external expertise in the fields related to the activity. All projects should have a verifiable impact on the capacity of the whole network to contribute to the implementation of the Innovation Union.
