CESifo Venice Summer Institute 2012 " Cross Border Mobility of Students and Researchers: Financing and Implications for Economic Efficiency and Growth"
Island of San Servolo in the Bay of Venice, Italy
Topics: 1. Mobility of Higher Education students across Europe and the world is increasing, but it creates imbalances (some countries are net importers of students, like Austria and Belgium, while others are net exporters); moreover, many graduates spend their career in jurisdictions other than their country of origin or education. In such a context, how to finance efficiently and fairly the cost of studies and the cost of living of mobile students? 2. Research is key for innovation and growth, and for our future in general. Though mainly financed by nation states, research generates cross-border externalities and researchers are increasingly mobile and integrated into international networks. How then to finance research efficiently? In that respect, are the European Research Council (ERC) grants an efficient and fair instrument? Which approaches deserve investigation and policy recommendation? 3. What is the impact of students?? and researchers?? mobility on economic efficiency, especially on the creation of a EU-wide single market for skilled workers and innovation? What is the impact on growth and on a fair distribution of economic and social progress? [gem?_?? den Informationen des Anbieters - according to site editor's information]
