Mobility Patterns and Career Paths of EU Researchers

This project is funded by the European Commission, Directorate General for Research and Innovation

With the MORE3 study, the European Commission has aimed to collect detailed information and data on the mobility patterns and career paths of EU researchers. The MORE3 study has updated, improved and further developed the set of indicators defined in the MORE2 study.


With this information, the European Commission has gained insight in what researchers find important in their careers and mobility, to what extent they still face barriers for mobility or career progression but also which impact policy measures have (had) on these aspects. The study ran from January 2016 until January 2018 and was carried out by a consortium led by IDEA Consult, Belgium.
