EURAXESS – Researchers in motion

The University of Milan is part of the EURAXESS network that includes 200 Service Centres in 35 European countries, and is one of  the 6 EURAXESS Italy  Service Local Contact Points.

EURAXESS – Researchers in Motion, is a unique initiative, launched by the European Commission to promote research careers and facilitate the mobility of researchers across Europe.

Reseachers who intend to work in an European country or to get in touch with their collegues throughout Europe can count on the EURAXES databases to share information and best practices.

Through Euraxess they can find a suitable job or grant by publishing their curriculum vitae or by consulting the adverts published by research organization (both public and private).

 EURAXESS network databases provide researchers with all general and practical information about their rights and their staying in another country – from how to get their visa to how to find an accommodation or choose a language course.

Jobs, Services, Rights, and Links are the 4 EURAXESS initiatives that you can access through the European Portal, or through the national ones.

EU-CHINA Research and Innovation Partnership

In the framework of the programme “EU-CHINA Research and Innovation Partnership”, promoted by the Delegation of the European Union to China & Mongolia, The University of Milan coordinates the project
"EU-China partnership on novel strategies to treat diabetes from plant-derived proteins –ECRIP" ( EuropeAid/135-587/DD/ACT/Multi)

Project Coordinator: Prof. Livio Luzi

Partners: Sixth People's Hospital Shanghai, Policlinico San Donato Spa, Karolinska Institutes

By establishing a research  partnership on nutraceutics applied to prevention and  treatment of diabetes mellitus that allows for the mobility of junior and senior researchers and cooperation with the private sector, the Project aims to enhance prevention of  diabetes as a major challenge recognized by the international community.

The use of  plant-derived substances with anti-diabetic properties will develop novel protocols to prevent and treat diabetes in an economically sustainable way.

Junior researchers from the EU partner institutions will join in the research group so as to be exposed to China RI capabilities, benefit from cross-cultural interchange and allowing for continued cooperation in the project.

The cooperation between  EU /China universities and private and public sector research hospitals will grow resulting in joint exploitation of the outcomes, marketing of research results and reduction of diabetes morbidity worldwide.
