Welcome to EURAXESS in the Faroe Islands

We provide information and assistance for mobile researchers – by means of this portal and with the support of our EURAXESS Service Centres.

The portal contains practical information concerning professional and daily life as well as information on job and funding opportunities. If you do not find the information you need to plan and organize the move for you and your family, do not hesitate to contact us personally. 

Faroese researchers planning to continue their research career abroad can also find useful information and assistance in this portal and in the portals of the countries they consider moving to.

Research institutes, universities and businesses can post job offers and researchers can upload CV´s when registering a user account at MY EURAXESS. 

All services of the EURAXESS network are free of charge.
