  • UNIBI participated in an exchange of knowledge with national and international research projects on youth mobility (including the MOVE project) in November 2016. This activity was coordinated by the German association “transfer e.V.”, which acts as a gateway between science and policy. UNIBI has also been consulted regarding the planning of a research coordinated by “transfer e.V.” into the obstacles related to the access to initiatives that offer mobility experiences to young people. At the same time, YMOBILITY results can feed into this research with regard to the question what distinguishes mobile from non-mobile young people, considering the importance of previous experiences abroad for the success of international students and young mobile workers in Europe. Further information can be found on the website:
