The Federation of European Neurosciences (FENS) and the Kavli foundation have recently founded the FENS-Kavli Network of Excellence (www.fenskavlinetwork.org) a group of young, outstanding neuroscientists dedicated to providing peer support for early career neuroscientists and serving as the voice for people at this career stage in shaping the future of neuroscience. Part of this support is this series of opinion articles whose primary goal is to provide advice about different aspects of career progression in neuroscience. 

Abstract

The mobility of researchers is fundamental to develop a knowledge-based society that fosters innovativeness and competiveness. Domesticmobility is welcome but international human resources are the main objective. Research institutes, universities, and laboratories want to recruit skilled professionals, and constraining their human resource pool within national borders means losing an enormous potential workforce.
