European Network on International Student Mobility: Connecting Research and Practice

International Student Mobility (ISM) is a prominent aspect of the Internationalization in Higher Education (IHE). Scholarly research on ISM has particularly intensified over the last two decades, which led to a significant improvement of our scientific understanding of the determinants, experiences and outcomes of ISM. However, surprisingly little connection and exchange exists among researchers across different disciplines, as well as between researchers, practitioners, and policy makers, despite the relevance that scientific knowledge on ISM has for policy and daily practice. The ENIS-network, funded by the COST Association, aims to stimulate a more systematic interdisciplinary and international exchange of knowledge on theoretical frameworks, research methodologies, findings, and best practice examples, and for translating scientific findings into recommendations for ISM practice.
