ERA Chairs and mobility schemes in H2020: Drivers, barriers & lessons learnt - 12 October 2016, Brussels, Belgium

[Source: Research & Innovation] This workshop aims to highlight and share lessons learned on selected mobility schemes at institutional level. An interactive session will identify how the mobility schemes presented in this workshop (Spreading Excellence, selected MSCA as well as COST Actions) can have a synergistic effect.Conclusions and proposals for improvement will be communicated to the European Commission for consideration.Mobility schemes in Horizon 2020 have become much more than researcher capacity–building measures or instruments for simply attracting excellent researchers. They also aim to bring value to host organisations and the regions concerned, contributing to the path of sustainable growth in the frame of Smart Specialisation (RIS3). Basic benefits stemming from mobility actions include: boosting innovation activities, enhancing international recognition for the host organisation, promoting interdisciplinary research, as well as exploiting the merits of industry-academia collaboration. It is therefore imperative to share knowledge on what works well and what doesn’t in order to make the most of mobility funding schemes. This is a side-event during the European Week of Regions and Cities at the Committee of the Regions.
