European Week of Regions and Cities – MOVE & YMobility come together!


The two very successful inter- and transdisciplinary H2020-projects, YMOBILTYand MOVE, offer a rich research output and policy recommendationsfor regional policy-makers, practitioners and stakeholders related to the diversity of motivations for mobility, mobility-patterns (such as emigration, immigration, return migrants and circularity) and the mitigation of effects in and on the EU-regions.

On 9 October, ERYICA will facilitate a workshop on the two projects during the European Week of Regions and Cities. The ambition of this session is to provide a research-informed contribution towards the improvement of conditions for the mobility of people and, at the same time, to reduce negative impacts of mobility in regions: Fostering the individual and regional socio-economic development is our aim.

Research and policy recommendations linked to the following questions will be presented and discussed with regional policy-makers and young scientists:

  • Different motivations of young people for intra-EU mobility

  • Types of young mobiles (students, apprentices, employed, young entrepreneurs, young solidarians, pupils) and reasons why non-mobile young people do not take up mobility

  • Practices, experiences and influencing factors of mobility: Lessons to learn

  • Short- and long-term outcomes for individuals, taking into account return migration and future intentions of mobility

  • Impacts on regions of destination and regions of origin

  • Co-creation in research and policy-making: Examples of good practice fostering inclusion, better communication and impact.
