Welcome to EURAXESS Cyprus


EURAXESS - Researchers in Motion is a pan-European Initiative launched by the European Commission to promote research careers and facilitate the mobility of researchers across Europe.

EURAXESS is a platform for researchers, entrepreneurs, universities, and businesses to interact with each other. It covers mobility issues, allows institutions to find the right talent, and connects people, projects and funding.

Assistance is also available to reserchers through the Cypriot network of EURAXESS Service Centres. The Service Centres help researchers and their families to plan and organise their move to a foreign country, providing assistance in all matters related to mobility.

All services of the EURAXESS network are free of charge.
