1 Academic Staff Mobility as an Integral Part of the Internationalisation Strategy of Higher Education Institutions DAAD, Berlin 14 December 2012 Michael Gaebel European University Association

2 EUA - «the Voice of European Universities«800 individual universities Introduction to EUA 34 national Rectors Conferences Associated university networks + organisations in 47 European countries 2

3 Eurostat Information sources Bologna implementation reports Euro-Doc Survey (2008/9) EUA membership survey 2011/12: Priorities for the new EU programmes for learning and teaching MAUNIMO - Mobility mapping project + tool ( ): strategies and data collection for mobility enhancement

4 MAUNIMO - Mobility Mapping Tool institutional self audit strategy development data collection all members of the institution fact-finding perceptions 700 responses mainly staff 34 institutions from 21 countries Publication: Mobility closing the gap between policy and practice

5 EU Policy 2000/2001 EU Mobility action plan: The transnational mobility of people contributes to enriching different national cultures and enables those concerned to enhance their own cultural and professional knowledge and European society as a whole to benefit from those effects. Such experience is proving to be increasingly necessary given the current limited employment prospects and an employment market which requires more flexibility and a greater ability to adapt to change. prepare those involved in implementing mobility: teachers, the administrative staff concerned, etc. (the "mobility organisers"); develop exchanges and mobility between the mobility organisers ; European Quality for Mobility Charter 2006, Education and Training 2020; Erasmus for All FP6 (2002): opening up to global mobility - competitiveness and innovation European Researchers Charter and Code (2005)

6 European researchers charter and code to contribute to the development of an attractive, open and sustainable European labour market for researchers.... overcome administrative and legal obstacles value of all forms of mobility to and from the European Union Employers and/or funders must recognise the value of geographical, intersectoral, inter- and trans-disciplinary and virtual mobility as well as mobility between the public and private sector... needs to be fully recognised in the career appraisal and career advancement systems for researchers portability of grants and social security provisions. transparent, open, equal and internationally accepted system of recruitment and career development Selection committees: diverse expertise and competences (gender balance, different sectors (public and private) and disciplines, incl. international members).

7 Bologna Process In every ministerial Communique: student and staff/researcher/ teacher mobility in the context of student mobility Part of National Action Plans (all but BE/FL, FR, SI) 6 countries national target (LT, ES, ET, FI, RO, SI) Shift towards institutional responsiblity (CZ, FI)? No European definition Limited statistical data

8 Erasmus staff mobility

9 EUA survey Maunimo Bologna implementation Obstacles nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn Personal situation x x x workload/time - replacement x x x Insufficient language skills x x x Legal obstacles (visa, social security issues) x Administrative burden (intra institutional, EU x x mobility programmes) (academic) recognition of periods abroad - x x x career advancement More structured mobility opportunities / x x increase of quality Lack of information x Insufficient funding x x x Funding for: shorter periods abroad, conference participation, language courses, activities linked to research, replacements x report *EUA survey: same answers from academic and administrative staff

10 Clear institutional and staff benefits international experience career development intercultural skills global outlook Knowledge, mutual learning, source for inspiration (research, learning and teaching, institutional development) Improve quality of research and teaching Exchange and collaboration (joint degrees, partnerships) Attract highly talented staff Promotes the institution Internationalise the university

11 Yes, at my institution is sufficient awareness for the importance of mobility of 24% 50% 67% Source: MAUNIMO/ Mobility Closing the gap

12 Statements... 12

13 Institutional realities Staff mobility comes second after student and young researchers mobility Often staff mobility is driven by external funding opportunities (Erasmus...) pro-activity of individual staff No discussion, no clear strategy or vision Low levels of institutional preparedness Services and support mainly for students International recruitment? International experience valued? Use made from mobile/ international staff? Insufficient data

14 Doctoral candidates some countries: mobility obligatory Doctoral programmes/ schools 30%-50% of doctoral candidates have mobility experiences (Eurodoc survey) Unavailable funding is the main obstacle for not being mobile flexible mobility options individual needs

15 Problems of institutional data collection and assessment Institutions do not have data on staff mobility Researcher/ academic staff mobility difficult to capture Staff wants mobility but do not want to be controlled Methods mandatory registration resisted by staff improvement of user interfaces and reports surveys - low participation incentives - yes, but importing data from other systems (travel expense, publications) What to count? external reporting requirements and definitions change

16 University Oslo - International Staff Mobility «UiO Increasingly Isolating Itself» 16 Slides presented by Solveig Aas, University Oslo - MAUNIMO Conference, September 4-5, 2012

17 Institutions need their own data Even if we have the best national research documentation system in the world, data has to be entered, and reports to be tailored to local / institutional needs Maunimo project participant 17

18 Data collection: What do we want to know and why? Do we want to record time periods abroad Different from student mobility contacts and exchanges, joint work, projects, virtual mobility international research and teaching cooperation Rationale Activities Impact quality - opportunities 18

19 How to improve staff mobility Evidence-based international strategy: Staff mobility as an institutional priorities Institutional commitment (incl. Leadership) Collaboration bottom-up - top-down support Means also for impact assessment institutional cultures for data collection reporting: general level of data collection and data use comprehensive approach - not only mobility contractual requirement not control, but strategic means, basis for dialogue reports are tailored to the department/ faculty Analysis of benefits and needs

20 Staff mobility - summary Policy level EU/Bologna/National governments: Political mobility imperative: free movement, united Europe, European knowledge area Weak data base: Erasmus Wide agreement on benefits: quality of research and teaching, student mobility Obstacles: funding, regulation, lack of recognition Main drivers: funding provision and individual interest institutional responsibility: Strategic implementation data Institutional internationalisation strategies focus on student mobility, doctoral candidates, postdocs Staff mobility not yet a priority is this changing? why? element and driver for internationalisation, new ways of educational collaboration

21 Prospects in times of economic crisis National and European level EU budget: more funding for mobility BFUG definition for staff mobility + guidelines data collection in Eurostat/Bologna? migration - demographic developments research interest Differences between HE systems grow? Higher education institutions changes less funding for grants and ad hoc mobility, temporary contracts syndication: more inter - institutional collaboration (within and between countries)? crisis as a catalyst for internationalisation? contradicting priorities - where to invest?
