Universities mobility networking event

Crown World Mobility Event

Managing global mobility within the tertiary education and research sector

Navigating the global mobility landscape within the university setting presents unique challenges, from varying employment arrangements to budget constraints and international jurisdictions. These complexities require a specialised understanding that goes beyond the typical scope of mobility management. 
Join us for an event created by university mobility professionals, specifically for university mobility professionals. This event is tailored to address the specific intricacies and challenges encountered in managing global mobility within the tertiary education and research sector. 

This event provides a platform for in-house university global mobility professionals to come together, exchange experiences, and delve into the pressing issues affecting global mobility. University in-house mobility professionals will have the opportunity to share experiences, ideas, and issues with like-minded peers who understand the challenges that can arise during the event.
Furthermore, we have invited external advisors with a wealth of experience in the university sector to ensure they bring a well-rounded perspective on the complexities of global mobility.
