The Centre for Strategy & Evaluation Services (CSES), EPRD, PPMI, and Innova+ are undertaking a study for the European Commission’s DG Research and Innovation on Fostering Industrial Talents through the Intersectoral Mobility of Researchers. The objective is to conduct a feasibility study into whether there is a place for additional EU-level initiatives to increase the level of intersectoral mobility in Europe. The form, scope, and breadth of any proposed initiatives are to be developed and evaluated during the study, and may serve as a best-practice model for academia and industry partners. The specific objectives are to:

  • 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.

As part of the study, CSES is carrying out a survey targeted at individual researchers having participated in an intersectoral mobility experience. Please use the following link: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/5FB7T6L. Please note that the deadline to fill in the survey is 20 October 2017.
