International student mobility: connecting research to practice

International student mobility is at the heart of higher education institutions’ internationalisation strategies, but it is often not informed by research evidence – and research often does not consider practitioners’ most urgent needs. In this session, we will look at concrete examples and consider how to improve these connections, leading to a better use of research results in institutional strategies and practices, and to a better connection between research and institutional needs.
