Abstract

The main purpose of the conference was to provide a forum for researchers and research administrators to exchange views concerning current experience of mobility opportunities in Europe and how these could be further developed in the 21st century. Both the title and subject of the conference were based on the Commission Communication Towards a European Research Area. Four main themes (each divided into two sub-themes) were used to focus attention on different aspects of mobility and investment in Europe's human research potential:
A) Matching the needs and capacity of researchers in Europe
- Attractiveness of European research and brain drain
-Virtual mobility: an opportunity for the Europeans
B) Facilitating the mobility of researchers and scientists in Europe
-Obstacles that have a bearing on the mobility of researchers
- European dimension of research careers
C) Mobility as an instrument for the transfer of knowledge and technology
-European policy for transfer of knowledge and technology
-Mobility of researchers between academic world and industry and between regions as a vehicle for regional development including Accession Countries
D) Adding a European dimension to scientific education
- Training in "hot topics"
- Role of the international scientific organisations in the promotion of the European dimension to scientific education.
