"I would definitely recommend Euraxess as it has a wide range of support services to promote research in Europe. I found my PhD opportunity through Euraxess jobportal and I benefited from information and assistance from Euraxess to help me settle in during my initial period in Luxembourg. The website is designed in such a way that a wide range of support services are easily accessible to everyone. The transition from the Netherlands to Luxembourg was very smooth with guidance (tips and assistance) from Euraxess. Overall, I would like to thank Euraxess for its efforts to support research in Europe."

Second, the guide on Luxembourg I was provided with was very helpful. The people working for Euraxess Luxembourg have always been very close to the researchers. Euraxess Luxembourg is doing a fine job assisting people like me and they are always available for consultation to deal with any problems that may arise.”

“In general, Euraxess Network was important for me in the process of finding research opportunities throughout Europe, although the most unique feature was the ability to compare these opportunities based on the job conditions offered by the employer. Professionally Luxembourg gave me the opportunity to research in my area of interest, which is a new field and requires teams with a very wide set of research competences.”

“Euraxess Luxembourg were of extreme importance during my moving to Luxembourg. I was dealing with the difficulty of getting a suitable place to stay. Then I got to know about the existence of the Euraxess Luxembourg. When I got in direct contact with the coordinator of Euraxess Luxembourg, Ms. Barbara Daniel, she immediately solved my problem. She has always found the time to receive us and to actively try to help us. It is always more comfortable to undertake this kind of ventures when you feel that there are people at your side.”

"EURAXESS had an important role since the beginning. First, I saw the advertisement for the position on Euraxess website.

"From the beginning, Euraxess was very helpful in simplifying the administrative process for me and this simplified the uncertainties linked to moving to a new country. Luxembourg can be a bit administratively heavy country at the start and Euraxess does the perfect job in minimizing this burden for the researchers so that they can focus on their research."
