Internationalization of Research and Graduate Studies and its Implications in the Transatlantic Context
In an increasingly globalized economy, science and technology careers extend beyond national boundaries. Universities and research institutes worldwide are addressing these developments by setting up exchange programs, double and/or joint degrees, and foreign campuses. Several EU-U.S. co-operation ventures promote the training and mobility of researchers and are likely to be further developed.
- Achieve a common understanding of the situation and main trends
- Identify key obstacles to increasing transatlantic mobility of students and researchers
- Discover ways and means for strengthening the exchange of scientists and engineers between the EU and the United States in quantitative and qualitative terms
Key Questions The Workshop Will Addressed
- How to stimulate the development of transatlantic degrees to attract more talented young people into science careers?
- What innovative curricula are needed to prepare the next generation of scientists and engineers to engage in global R&D careers?
- What scientist mobility schemes can best contribute to the building of lasting transatlantic networks of excellence?
- How the transatlantic mobility of scientists can best contribute to innovation in a global context?
