Search for partners

We help you find partners from other European countries to set up your transnational consortium.

Participation in Horizon 2020 requires, as a general rule, a set of independent entities from different European countries.

Advice on transnational mobility of researchers

The European Commission has launched, together with the Member States of the European Union, the "European Network of Euraxess Service Centers" (EURAXESS).

The aim of the network is to help overcome practical obstacles encountered by researchers and their families in moving to/from/within European territory.

The Spanish Network, which coordinates the Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology, is created by Service Centers and Local Contact Points in each Autonomous Community.

madri+d Foundation, as the Euraxess Service Center of Madrid, provides information, advice and personalized assistance on: visas, work permits, wages, health care, social security, accommodation, schooling, Spanish courses, as well as opportunities for financing the research career at European level.
