Do you sometimes think about working abroad, but do you lack the necessary information in order to take concrete steps? Or are you a non-Belgian researcher interested in staying (and working) in Belgium in the future?

In May/June, a consultant from EURES will come to Hasselt University to give you individual advice on labour mobility. The advice will not be specifically targeted at working in academia, but rather at labour mobility in general.

  • For foreign researchers, advice can be provided on working in Belgium.
  • For Belgian researchers, advice can be provided on working abroad. For example, the consultant can give hints and tips on searching for a job abroad, formalities you need to think of, contacts that may come in handy, etc.

In addition to general advice, you can ask specific questions. Please prepare them in advance.

Importantly, although Eures has been set up to provide support in European labour mobility, the consultant will also be able to provide information about mobility beyond the European borders. There will be individual timeslots of 30 minutes each.

Because it concerns a brief individual advice session, this activity cannot be acknowledged within the framework of the doctoral school requirements.


For whom?

  • master students and junior researchers


  • May 23, June 13 or June 20, 2019: 30 min / person


  • campus Diepenbeek, building D, room C102B




The purpose of EURES is to provide information, advice and recruitment/placement (job-matching) services for the benefit of workers and employers as well as any citizen wishing to benefit from the principle of the free movement of persons. EURES has a human network of more than 850 EURES advisers that are in daily contact with jobseekers and employers across Europe.

In European cross-border regions, EURES has an important role to play in providing information about and helping to solve all sorts of problems related to cross-border commuting that workers and employers may experience.

Set up in 1993, EURES is a co-operation network between the European Commission and the Public Employment Services of the EEA Member States (The EU countries plus Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein) and other partner organisations. Switzerland also takes part in EURES co-operation. The joint resources of the EURES member and partner organisations provide a solid basis for the EURES network to offer high quality services for both workers and employers.
