Internationalization of Research and Graduate Studies and its Implications in the Transatlantic Context: EU/US Research and Education Workshop

In an increasingly globalized economy, science and technology careers extend beyond national boundaries. Universities and research institutes worldwide are addressing these developments by setting up exchange programs, double and/or joint degrees, and foreign campuses. Several EU-U.S. co-operation ventures promote the training and mobility of researchers and are likely to be further developed.

As part of the national presidency of the European Union, the French Embassy in Washington, D.C., along with the EU, NSF, and the Georgia Institute of Technology, is hosting a two-day workshop in Atlanta on November 17 and 18. Discussion will include the following topics: how to achieve a common understanding of the situation and main trends; how to identify key obstacles to increasing transatlantic mobility of students and researchers; and how to discover ways and means for strengthening the exchange of scientists and engineers between the EU and the United States in quantitative and qualitative terms.
