Mobility of the Highly Skilled

As national economies increasingly focus on high-tech innovation processes and national societies become globalised, the mobility of highly skilled people has become a central topic in political and scientific discourse. This has prompted DZHW to launch a research cluster on the Mobility of the Highly Skilled.

The target groups are individuals holding a higher education entry qualification, students and higher education graduates. The cluster examines conducive and inhibiting factors as well as effects of the mobility of highly skilled people on three analytical levels. On a micro level, the main focus is on the role of individual-level determinants and career-related effects. The meso level focuses on the role of specific working environments and partnership constellations, and on the impact of mobility on both sending and receiving institutions. At the macro level, the moderating role of country-specific contexts and the effects on national economies are taken into account. The overall aim is to contribute to theory building and methodological development within the research field. Another objective is to discuss the practical implications (e.g. for the design of data collection instruments) of investigating a target group that is hard to capture with traditional survey tools that largely operate within the boundaries of single countries or regions.

Both DZHW and external scientists are involved in the cluster.

The first workshop of the research cluster took place on the 11th May 2017 in Hannover. You may download the programme here.
