Share YOUR Experience: Invitation to Participate in a Global Survey
Dear Friends and Colleagues,

With the MORE3 study, the European Commission aims to collect detailed information and data on the mobility patterns and career paths of researchers. In the context of this project, a Global Survey will be conducted aimed at researchers who currently work outside Europe. This is an important piece of work aimed at collecting information on the working conditions, remuneration packages, international mobility and career perspectives of researchers.

In the coming days, you, as a member of the Euraxess community, will be invited to actively participate to this study. The results of the survey will help the European Commission updating existing and developing new set of policies aimed at making careers more attractive, improve mobility and working conditions for researchers. As a researcher you are the primary source of information for this type of exercise and therefore we trust you will successfully answer this survey.

Responses to the survey will be treated confidentially by the contractors, and processed in compliance with Regulation (EC) 45/2001 on Personal Data Protection. The data will not be evaluated at the level of individual researchers or universities but used only for the construction of aggregated or country specific indicators.

If you require further information on the survey, or the broader study that it is part of, please visit the website ( or contact the contractors directly ( You can also get directly in contact with the policy officer responsible for this study ( 

Best regards,

EURAXESS North America Team
