EURAXESS Spain is divided into different service centers spread across the different spanish communities, providing information and advice to researchers and their families in matters affecting their work and family life in Spain in order to solve the legal,administrative and cultural problems. Thus, from its inception in 2004, the initiatif of the European Commission, the EURAXESS Network has succeeded in integrating 16 service centers.
The Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology (FECYT) is the institution designated by the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness for the coordination of the Spanish Network of Mobility Centres (EURAXESS Spain). In the community of the Principado de Asturias is the Foundation for Asturias Promotion of Applied Scientific Research and Technology (FICYT), which is responsible for assisting and advising various foreign researchers who come to Asturias or Spanish researchers returning from a foreign country.
The goal and objectives remain the same and provision of information to visiting researchers continues to be the leitmotif. Access to information and to give clues on the existing administrative barriers ranging from work permits to health services or finding suitable accommodation or educational centres for children. There are still many constrains to be solved before a visiting researcher can effectively settle down at his/her destination in Europe and many of them may differ depending on the Country of choice and even between Regions. This Web page, as part of the EURAXESS network, tries to provide the visitor with updated information on the existing resources available in the Principality of Asturias (N. of Spain).
We have divided its contents into a few Sections, giving links to places where prospective visitors should address there queries more directly:
- The first part is devoted to Job opportunities in Asturias.
- Administrative questions mainly relating the paperwork to obtain a residence permit for foreigners goes next.
-The third one concerns the list of the existing Research Centers in Asturias,
- A fourth area concerns the Accommodation, Education and Health Services in our community.
-A fifth and last area consists of a Forum intended as a communication tool where questions more directly linked to any of the above issues can be addressed. Here personal questions will produce tailor made answers.
Do please note that this web page ultimately links to outside web pages which are not maintained by us. Whereas the overall quality of the information they provide will be monitored from the FICYT office for EURAXESS , there is nothing we that we can do with the language issue as all of them are in Spanish what, in some cases, could be a limiting factor!
