EURAXESS Researchers in motion


EURAXESS – Researchers in motion is one of the key initiatives to enhance researchers' careers and mobility and, as such, is the operational instrument of related European policies.

University of Primorska is one of the EURAXESS contact points for Slovenia.

The role of the contact point is to support the staff of its own institution by providing assistance to incoming and outgoing researchers. Its principle responsibilities are to:

  • Provide support to researchers and their families and/or organisations acting on their behalf for all mobility-related matters, including reliable information and customised assistance on administrative and procedural formalities
  • Keep track of the requests according to the operational rules of the Network
  • Promote EURAXESS among researchers and stakeholders
  • Adhere to the principles of the EURAXESS Code of Conduct




In 2016, the EURAXESS Service Centre in Slovenia opened. As part of the existing coordination of the EURAXESS network in Slovenia, the center offers support to foreign researchers as they begin their research career in Slovenia. Researchers can access information and support regarding visas, work and employment permissions, residence etc. and general questions on entrance into Slovenia.

The goal of the Center is to make mobility of foreign researchers in Slovenia easier, and to strengthen research mobility at our university.
