The main task of the EURAXESS Latvia network of contact points is to provide information and advice to foreign researchers on scientific career opportunities in Latvia, as well as to provide practical support to foreign researchers who are on mobility and their family members who wish to work and live in Latvia. Additionally, EURAXESS Latvia network of contact points provides information and contacts for receiving support abroad, both in Europe and worldwide, to those researchers who plan to undertake a period of mobility.
EURAXESS is an initiative of the European Research Area, which aims to promote the international and intersectoral mobility of researchers in Europe and non-EU member states and support an open labour market for researchers.
To achieve this goal, the European Commission has set up the EURAXESS network and portal https://euraxess.ec.europa.eu/a and ensures their operation in cooperation with the Member States of the European Union and its partners from non-EU states – North America, Latin America, and the Caribbean, South East Asia, India, China, Japan, and South Korea.
