Impacte Project

Impacte Project


ImpactE is a EURAXESS 7FP project focused on the successful professional and social integration of the researchers into a new environment. Amongst the obstacles to international mobility cultural differences are the most invisible and not the easiest to overcome as they are based on non-material factors, which differ from other matters like getting a visa or a place to stay.


Universities and research institutions from 8 European countries united their efforts to:

  • to empower researchers enrolled in mobility programmes with new capacities (professional and 'soft skills')
  • to improve the quality of EURAXESS services staff in the field of social, cultural and professional integration of researchers
  • to establish a network of EURAXESS ImpactE alumni, turning them into disseminators of EURAXESS

ImpactE project will simultaneously target three groups of stakeholders:

  • 200 mobile researchers. By offering them workshops on specific professional and 'soft' skills.
  • EURAXESS staff members in the partner regions. By participating in the specific 'train the trainer' scheme.
  • All EURAXESS network staff will benefit through common workshops and a TTT Guide.
