Researchers’ mobility is a key political issue at national and European levels. The project contributes to the advancement of knowledge on the nature and implications of scientific mobility in small developed countries, providing insights that can support policy formulation. Centered on a theoretical question about the role of scientific mobility on knowledge circulation and focusing the case of scientists in Portugal, the project develops a multi-dimension methodological approach to address outward and inward mobility: 1) to characterise mobility flows in terms of scale and contents and relationships with Portuguese S&T development; 2) to identify typologies of individual trajectories and experiences to understanding mobility processes; 3) to explore the implications of different modes of mobility for knowledge circulation; 4) to map the public debate on mobility.
