Hosting Foreign Researchers in Croatia

August 20, 2009.

For the purpose of attracting foreign researchers and making Croatia a part of the European Research Area, the Croatian Mobility Centre (EURAXESS), a contact-point assisting the process of hosting foreign researchers on research projects implemented at Croatian Universities and institutes, was also founded.

At the moment, as a result of the Ministry’s initiative, researchers from Holland, Portugal, China, India, Russia, Finland, Australia, Germany, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Kosovo, are working on science projects in Croatia.

The goal of this initiative is to increase the number of researchers in Croatia, particularly in the private sector, thus creating a sound basis for enhancing competitiveness and fostering economic growth, as well as to encourage further cooperation of Croatian researchers with their international colleagues.

More information on the topic of hosting of foreign researchers in Croatia can be found on the Ministry’s web page.
