Report on the effect of researchers' mobility in terms of scientific productivity.

Delivery date: month 24.

Abstract: The theoretical framework on why we expect a positive effect of mobility on performance is focussed on expected increases in human and social capital as well as on job matching theory. We hypothesise that only a move to an institution of higher quality/reputation will be associated with a medium term increase in productivity. Different indicators for scientific performance are debated. Further, we introduce a discussion on rankings to measure up and downward mobility. Then we present five case studies of the effect of mobility on performance. They shows result of the 16 country Glob-Sci survey and country studies on the UK, US and Japan.
