The mobility of researchers is a driver of excellence and a cornerstone in creating a European Research Area. However, one barrier to mobility is the ability of researchers to preserve their supplementary pension benefits when moving between countries and changing jobs. This leads to inadequate pensions, decreased competitiveness and fragmentation of the European labour market for researchers. To address this problem, the European Commission is supporting a consortium of employers to create RESAVER; a single European pension arrangement tailor-made for research organisations and their employees. RESAVER will enable mobile employees to remain affiliated to the same supplementary pension fund when moving between different countries and changing jobs. The overall target group for the initiative includes over 10 million employees working in the European research sector.
This session will provide an introduction to RESAVER and will be of interest to researchers who may wish to consider a move to another European Research Area country, at any stage of their careers.
