Barriers to mobility in research training
In 2002, NorFA and NIFU (Norwegian Institute for Studies in Research and Higher Education) initiated a project to investigate the barriers to mobility among doctoral students in the Nordic region. The results are presented in this report.
The author of the report is NIFU researcher Agnete Vabø. Among her recommendations are broader collaboration between centres of excellence, English as a standard language, overcoming social and practical obstacles and possible efforts that target women.
The report can be ordered from NorFA free of charge.
