Bizkaia:xede has been acknowledged as a local contact point (LoCP) of the European mobility network of the European Commission - Euraxess Services.

The acknowledgement of bizkaia:xede as a local contact point (LoCP) of the European mobility network of the European Commission -Euraxess Services, implies the recognition of the innovative welcome service (HARRERA/RELOCATION ADVISORY), which, since 2007, has made the labour and social integration of those foreign researchers and professionals who come to work to the Historical Territory of Bizkaia easier.
The European Commission is intensifying efforts to promote mobility and the development of a professional career amongst researchers, in order to turn Europe into a scientific excellence leader. This is the aim of the European mobility network, Euraxess Services, which seeks to help researchers and their families to organize their move to other member states.
This European network comprises four large initiatives:
EURAXESS is an essential tool to help researchers to overcome mobility barriers such as: visas, work permits, recognition of qualifications, job vacancies, salaries, taxation, pensions and social benefit transfers, heath care, social security, accommodation, schooling and educational system, language courses, information on the culture and customs of the host country, research vacancies and fellowships, etc. and it was created on 1st June 2008.
This network is made up of state and regional offices or nodes, and bizkaia:xede is one of them.
