Mobility and collaboration of professionals is the key to developing and sustaining cutting-edge and effective research and innovation in Europe. 

It is vital to enable researchers to work together on the large and complex global issues of the day – including health and environmental challenges – which require international and collaborative research efforts to try to find effective solutions.

It is also important as mobility helps researchers, especially young researchers and those at an early stage of their career, to develop professionally, academically and personally by enabling them to acquire new skills and experiences, and become more effective researchers.

In this webinar, you will have the opportunity to listen, and pose to questions to, a panel of prominent researchers including Professor Sir Martyn Poliakoff and Dr Joanna Bagniewska who will talk to us about their opinions on a range of topics, such as:

  • What are the priorities for mobility and collaboration across Europe?
  • Which mechanisms have worked well in supporting collaboration and mobility across Europe?
  • Is there a greater role for R&D/Industry
  • Where are the challenges and opportunities around mobility funding at present?
  • What opportunities might there be for the HE & Research sector through this process - either through change or greater collaboration (and with whom)?
  • What are the main challenges around movement of Early Career Researchers and resources?
  • Should Early Career Researchers have special status and funding?
  • What are the crucial areas of collaboration and work that we must not lose when the UK leaves the EU and how might we achieve this? How can universities and research institutes help to continue cooperation?
  • How can we engage Early Career Researchers in the process of continued cooperation across Europe?
