Internationalization of higher education research and careers is largely associated with academic mobility. In Europe, the share of mobile academics varies strongly depending on the country and concerns different stages of the careers. Being mobile has various effects on the careers according to national contexts but tends to increase the international dimension of the research scope through increasing academic international social capital.
