Systematic and focused career management is becoming increasingly important for both researchers and their employers. It should enable the research institutions to fully use the potential of their human resources and researchers to identify and grasp the number of different opportunities that labour market offers for their careers.
Offering both researchers and their employers tools and assistance in the set up of career management process is a critical task. EURAXESS network aims to overtake an important role in this in the foreseeable future and become the reference point in career development for mobile and non-mobile researchers alike.
The REFLEX Researcher Career Development Scheme Application (The REFLEX App) is the online application developed to help the research institutions, researchers and professionals assisting researchers to facilitate the process of researchers’ career development. The tool is based on the model scheme developed in the REFLEX project. The scheme identifies key areas of researchers’ professional development and provides the examples of activities that can be carried out to support researchers in all of these areas.
