THE IMPACT OF CLUSTERING ON SCIENTIFIC MOBILITY
This article discusses the mobility of scientific researchers in the EU within the context of the clustering of science and R&D in particular geographical areas. Reporting on a case study of Italian researchers who moved to the UK, it considers the location decisions of this group of researchers based on the clustering of R&D in Europe and in the UK. The results point to the importance of prestige and networks in determining location decisions and these factors give established research centres an important advantage over smaller, developing ones.
