About the project
Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action “Global mobility of employees” (GLOMO) is an international research project and is part of the Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. It will see eight partners from across Europe generate knowledge about the global mobility phenomenon while training and developing a unique network of experts in the field, in order to make labour mobility more efficient and beneficial for all parties involved. The project has received total funding of almost four million Euros. Promoting labour mobility across Europe is a central objective of the Europe 2020 Strategy and it aims to tackle increasing labour and skill shortages in the EU. Cross-border labour mobility is expected to benefit individual citizens, employers and the aggregate economy. GLOMO’s focus is on global mobility into EU countries and within the EU and its impact on careers.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s H2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No. 765355.
15 PhD positions will be filled with a focus on migration and expatriation. The PhD students will be trained through a structured and comprehensive programme. The partners engaged in the project will work closely together, with each of the partners supervising at least one research project. All individual projects will have a duration of 36 months and the early stage researchers (ESR) will be enrolled as PhD students at the host institution. The PhD students will not only learn the theory but will gain first-hand experience of global mobility themselves, as all students will take secondments to one of the other partner universities and institutions, as well as to partner institutions throughout Europe (e.g. companies, ministries).
