Making the EU an accessible destination for students and researchers
Every year, hundreds of thousands of foreign students and researchers travel to Europe. This global mobility contributes to economic competitiveness and fosters the generation and acquisition of knowledge, skills and ideas.
However, foreign students and researchers are often faced with complex and unclear admission rules and procedures. To make Europe a more attractive destination for research and innovation, today the European Commission will propose to improve the current rules and conditions for third country national students, researchers and other groups, such as school pupils, trainees, volunteers and au pairs, to enter and stay in the EU.
The press conference with the Commissioner for Home Affairs, Cecilia Malmström, will be webcast live [ http://ec.europa.eu/avservices/ebs/live.cfm?page=1 ]here from 12.30 CET time.
