CARERA - ERA Mobility and Career Day 2017

In November 2017 CEU hosted ERA Mobility and Career Day, an unparalleled opportunity for researchers based in Hungary to learn about career opportunities in the European Research Area (ERA). The event was organized in partnership with Hungarian partner institutions Bay Zoltan Nonprofit Ltd and the Association of Hungarian Women in Science (NATE) and brought research employers and presenters to campus for a day of workshops, panel discussions, and information sessions, as well as a fair featuring research employers from both within and outside of Hungary. Check here the event brochure containing the profiles of the organizations recruiting researchers during the event. 

ERA Mobility and Career Day was part of a larger project funded by Horizon 2020 and aimed at promoting the EURAXESS network, an initiative of the European Union and its member states which supports mobility and career development while enhancing international collaboration within the European Research Area. With this project, the CEU Careers Office became the first administrative unit at CEU to attract EU funds to the university.
