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 explore the extent and nature of cross-disciplinary mobility and collaborative research activity in the POCARIM social science and humanities (SSH) population. Specifically, we wanted to understand the motivations and outcomes of this activity in terms of careers, knowledge transfer and innovation. In this policy report we present the project’s key findings on interdisciplinarity. 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.
