Eurodoc recommendations on entry and residence of third-country nationals

The European Commission has made a new proposal to define the conditions of entry and residence of third-country national researchers, students, pupils, volunteers and unpaid trainees, repealing the existing student directive (2004/114/EC) and researcher directive (2005/71/EC).

As the proposal is currently under discussion in trilogue negotiations between the European Commission, the European Parliament and the Council of European Union, this discussion paper underlines some of the main issues, raised by the current proposal, concerning doctoral candidates and junior researchers employed by research institutions.

Within the diversity of administrative and legal framework under which a researcher, at any stage of his/her career, the researcher status is the one which recognizes better the research activity. It usually goes with a proper contract of employment.

However, other issues, such as scientific visas and conditions of mobility for 3rd country nationals researchers in different frameworks of research mobility and/or programs, also have to be discussed. These conditions are defined in other directives and regulations.

The Eurodoc paper and recommendations on the entry and residence of third-country nationals for the purposes of research are now published, You can read the paper by clicking on this link.

 Eurodoc recommendations on the entry and residence of third-country nationals for the purpose of research
Towards a more adequate framework
