Martina Chrancokova from YMOBILITY Slovak team presented at the Slovak Evonomic Association Meeting (SEAM 2017) a working paper that comes out from her dissertation titled Tacit Knowledge via International Migration.
The paper aims to explore the connection between European mobility of Slovak migrants and the transfer of their tacit knowledge. Four different forms of knowledge are measured and the most transferred type of tacit knowledge among Slovak migrants is identified. The research objective is to detect tacit knowledge acquired by residence abroad that pertain to personal, professional, social and cultural interaction—the migrants’ own human capital. The study also attempts to fill some gaps in the understanding of the different types of migration and knowledge attained through international migration, particularly in the context of Slovakia. Adopting methods of qualitative analysis, primary data were obtained through controlled semi-structured interviews.
