Practical information

The GLOMO Summer School takes place in the Alaric Building of the TBS premises, 6 Place Alfonse Jourdain, 31000 Toulouse.Please note that only the above seminars are open to external participants. 


The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action “Global mobility of employees” (GLOMO) is an international research project, co-ordinated by Prof. Dr. Maike Andresen from the University of Bamberg, Germany, and is financed under the funding line “excellent science” of the Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme of the European Commission. GLOMO’s focus is on global mobility into EU countries and within the EU and its impact on careers. The policy making white papers and research suggest that the future Europe will witness even higher and more natural mobility.To assure that Europe is ready for it, our objectives are to:

  • systematically generate knowledge about the mobility phenomenon and its implications (success factors, effects and added value);

  • provide trainings to (further) develop early-stage and senior researchers understanding the complex multidisciplinary phenomenon of mobility, and

  • suggest relevant implications for individuals, organisations, the European societies and economies. The joint research and training programme will be conducted within an interdisciplinary and intersectoral network of experts in the field.

To achieve the research goals, 15 PhD positions will be based in six countries among the eight host organisations participating in 15 interconnected research missions of this Innovative Training Network (ITN) project “Global mobility of employees” (GLOMO).There are 8 beneficiary partner institutions, of which there are 6 Universities/Business School in the 6 participating countries plus an economic research institute (IAB Nürnberg) in Germany and Airbus Group as a leading corporate partner, who will also host one PhD research mission out of the 15 in the project.
