Project Summary

The Australia-APEC Researcher Mobility Workshop aims to bring together prominent academics, university leaders, industry partners, governments and research organisations from across the Asia-Pacific to discuss and identify ways of promoting and supporting the mobility of research students and researchers as well as enhancing research innovation in the Asia Pacific region. The workshop is directly relevant to the 2012 APEC Economic Leaders’ Declaration on Promoting Cross-Border Education Cooperation (CBE Cooperation), which instructed Ministers and officials to take forward priorities relating to mobility. This project was given highest priority by the Human Resources Development Working Group (HRDWG) in the APEC Session two 2014 funding round.

The workshop seeks to consider the challenges facing greater researcher mobility across the APEC region, particularly by APEC emerging economies, through in-depth discussion of the issues by invited experts in the relevant fields. This focus aligns with APEC’s cross-border education cooperation agenda, by assisting with capacity-building and strengthening institutional linkages.

To support researcher mobility, economies can pursue opportunities in the form of physical mobility and open communication channels; shared use of facilities and funding; and research collaboration and joint publications. Research-industry links can contribute to strengthening economies’ innovation systems. Institutional cooperation is becoming increasingly important to address major economic, social and environmental challenges facing economies. International cooperation also improves research outcomes with greater collaboration capable of contributing to economic growth and improved living standards.

Expert research will be conducted prior to the workshop to identify the major challenges facing researcher mobility in the region and to provide a ‘snapshot’ of current research collaboration across APEC. At the workshop, delegates will share information on the policies, programmes and strategies in place within member economies’ governments, universities, research communities and industry. The findings of the research paper will also be presented, along with expert presentations focusing on four key issues: early researcher mobility, research funding, research infrastructure and research-industry linkages. The workshop seeks to identify possible practical actions to enhance research mobility across the Asia Pacific.

The workshop will be held over two days in October 2015, in Jakarta, Indonesia. Project funding is available to support the travel and participation of identified delegates from APEC travel-eligible economies. Interest will be sought from all APEC economies to assist with nominating government, academic and industry delegates.
