It’s been a productive quarter and a lot of us are already on our well-earned summer breaks – but don’t get too comfortable; the third quarter will bring a lot of exciting activities and before you know it we will all be knee deep with things to do, as we will see in this issue of the newsletter.

The Hot Topic of this issue is the report on European researchers’ mobility in China: Challenges and opportunities that is based on a survey conducted by EURAXESS China last winter and was published during the quarter. This work will be followed by a special Forum on the Mobility of European Researchers in China that will be organised on 19 September by the European Delegation in Beijing in cooperation with EURAXESS China.

We also put the spotlight on couple of news we thought were of special interest to our community; first is the upcoming InnovationLab which is part of the German Falling Walls competition and will be held in Shanghai in September, and the second is the news of the 2020 work plan of the European Research Council which will dedicate 2.2 billion euros to fund the blue-sky research of over 1100 researchers in 2020.

Finally we end the newsletter on familiar notes. This issue’s Country in Focus is Serbia and we also have included an extensive 4 page overview of all the activities in the community last quarter in our section In case you missed…

We wish you a happy summer!
