The ERA TALENT project
The ERA TALENT project aims at further developing the services provided by the EURAXESS network, through the reforming of its structure, with the aim to support the career development of researchers in Europe, expanding the career trajectories for them in academia, industry, business, the public and the non-governmental sectors. The project is also aiming to pave the way for integrating EURAXESS in the ERA Talent Platform, the forthcoming web portal of the European Commission comprehensively supporting researchers in their career development within the European Research Area, connecting researchers and institutions, and improving employability, talent absorption and mobility schemes.
Scope of the call
The ERA TALENT Call for Multiplying the Impact of EURAXESS Hubs will offer distinct, targeted financial support to parties that are EURAXESS members but do not directly participate in the ERA TALENT project as beneficiaries.
To ensure impact across the entire EURAXESS network and benefitting all five hubs, in this call up to 25 small-scale projects will be selected.
The total budget for the call is 592,000.00 €. Proposals may be funded up to 23,780 € each (including indirect costs).
The list of eligible countries for this call ( https://ec.europa.eu/info/funding-tenders/opportunities/portal/screen/opportunities/competitive-calls-cs/4121) is included in Annex 2.
EURAXESS membership (at any level) supported by a Declaration of Commitment signed and duly countersigned by the relevant institutions before 01.09.2022 is required.

Info session on the ERA TALENT Call for Multiplying the Impact of EURAXESS Hubs will be held on 27 November. More information here: https://www.euraxess.hu/hungary/events/info-session-era-talent-call-mul…
In addition, each hub will be organising their own information session. These sessions target centres with a minimal idea of which hub they want to link their application with but in need of more detailed information to start drafting their application. Therefore the sessions will
- introduce each hub in detail and
- discuss how call applicants may be linked to the respective hub’s activities.
