Survey from the European Commission on researchers’ intersectoral mobility

O. Benfaida

Do you think the EU could do better to facilitate and enhance researchers’ intersectoral mobility? Make your opinion count and take part in the survey :
 « Fostering industrial talents through the intersectoral mobility of researchers »
DG Research and Innovation from the European Commission wants to know if the existing incentives to enhance researchers’ intersectoral mobility are satisfying or if new incentives should be implemented in order to increase it.

This survey will be an opportunity to identify best practice models in this field, for both academic and industrial partners.

  • Ascertain the level of intersectoral mobility (ISM) of researchers in EU-28 Member States, EFTA/ EEA and candidate countries and between the EU and third countries ;
  • Identify examples of national and international intersectoral mobility schemes with a view to identifying a small number of best practice case studies and assessing the effects of ISM schemes ;
  • Develop a better understanding of the barriers and drivers of the uptake of support for the intersectoral mobility of researchers, including training, guidance and funding;
  • Assess whether there is a need for further EU-level intervention in the area of the intersectoral mobility of researchers and develop recommendations as to what form this may take.
