The aim of the Bologna Process is, inter alia, to promote the mobility of students, researchers, lecturers and other employees in higher education. In this way, they want to enable the strengthening of competencies and the expansion of knowledge and skills. Cooperation between universities, the expansion of innovation within the European Higher Education Area, the internationalization of institutions, the promotion of employment and career development opportunities, and the strengthening of Europe's cultural identity are encouraged.
The Leuven Communiqué states that the goal of mobility is that in 2020 at least 20% of those who complete their studies in Europe continue their studies or do an internship abroad.
It is also important to increase the number of people with research competencies. “Doctoral programs must provide high-quality disciplinary research and complement interdisciplinary and cross-sectoral programs as much as possible. At the same time, public authorities and higher education institutions will increase the attractiveness of the career development of young researchers, "the communiqué emphasized.
EURAXESS - Researchers on the Move is a unique pan-European initiative that provides information and support services to researchers. With the support of the European Union and its Member States, it supports the mobility of researchers and career development and strengthens scientific cooperation between Europe and the world. Researchers can access information and support regarding visa permits, work and employment, residence, etc.
The University of Primorska is one of the EURAXESS contact points for Slovenia.

The European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST) program is an intergovernmental framework for the cooperation of research organizations from different European countries in the field of science and technology, which enables coordination of nationally-funded research at the European level by research organizations working in the same field and problem.
More information can be found on the program website and at the National Coordinators (CNC).
The activities of Marie Skłodowska-Curie (MSCA) are available to researchers at all stages of their research careers - from doctoral candidates to those conducting more advanced research. MSCAs encourage researchers to cross-border or cross-sectoral mobility, support collaboration and exchange of ideas between different industrial sectors and research disciplines.
