horizon2020A new pilot action under the EU Research and Innovation Framework Programme “Horizon 2020” has been launched.

The aim of this action is to support SMEs and start-ups from the EU to recruit highly qualified specialists (PhD or equivalent, Swiss scientists will be accepted) that are not available on the national job market but whose knowledge would be crucial to open up opportunities for innovation. This call is being piloted to test the feasibility of an European measure to increase access to talent by encouraging mobility.

This action is managed by the Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized enterprises under the patronage of European Commission’s DG GROW. Further information is available on this webpage.

Please note that the call deadline is 30/06/2016.
