Abstract

Between 2011 and 2014 a multinational team of academics and researchers collaborated on a research project funded by the European Commission under the Framework 7 Programme: Mapping the Population, Careers, Mobilities and Impacts of Advanced Research Degree Graduates in the Social Sciences and Humanities (POCARIM). One aim of the project was to further our understanding of the role of networks in the careers of social science and humanities (SSH) researchers: how they are formed, how they are sustained or fall out of use, how they link researchers across disciplinary, sectoral and national boundaries, and what impacts they have on careers. In this policy report we present the project’s key findings on the nature of networking in the careers of SSH researchers. Our findings are based on original work carried out in each of the POCARIM countries and which includes: a review of the literature, policy and existing data, as well as original empirical survey and interview research. In the conclusion we draw out the implications of our findings for policymakers.
