About this site

EURAXESS is an inspiring and effective network, aiming to make Europe more attractive for international researchers through providing them with clear information on funding, jobs and administrative procedures in all European countries. If you want to know more about EURAXESS, I invite you to check out www.euraxess.eu, where you can find a lot of information on EURAXESS does.

A project proposal on the enhancement of this EURAXESS network has been accepted by the European Commission. (thank you EC!) This project has been given the name EURAXESS TOP III, or TOP III in short. (First we had TOP project, followed by the TOP II project, hence TOP III). In this project a lot of important network developments are worked out, which are for the benefit of the entire EURAXESS network. (40 countries, hundreds of EURAXESS centres)

As the national EURAXESS coordinator in The Netherlands, and active participant in TOP III, I noticed how dificult it is to explain what TOP III is about. To outsiders, but also to EURAXESS colleagues, who are not actively involved in TOP III themselves.

I think even that a lot of active participants in TOP III might not have a clear overview of all the different themes, processes and achievements. ……

That’s why I started this website. To open up the TOP III project for all EURAXESS colleagues. If you want to have more detailed information, please use the EURAXESS extranet to find out how you can contact the involved EURAXESS centre. My aim is not to answer all your detailed questions, or to provide support. All I hope to achieve here, is an overview of what the TOP III project is about.

Go to Tips on reading this website to get some background on the website structure.

This website is a personal endeavour. Of course I have consulted many participating EURAXESS Centre on the content. However it can not replace any official statement and it has no formal status.

If important information is missing or if I made more mistakes than you can handle, please let me know. (I will try to change it, add it, delete it, or modify it in any other way required)
