On 17 December 2013 the Federal Department of Economic Affairs, Education and Research (EAER) announced that it will support a new National Center of Competence in Research (NCCR) for Migration and Mobility Studies at the University of Neuchâtel. The nccr – on the move aims to enhance the understanding of contemporary migration patterns. It brings together research projects from social sciences, economics and law.
Managed from the University of Neuchâtel, the network comprises eighteen research teams from seven universities in Switzerland. Within the University of Neuchâtel the Swiss Forum of Migration and Population Studies (SFM), the Centre in the Analysis of Social Processes (MAPS) and the interdisciplinary Swiss Centre for Migration Law (CDM) are involved in the programme. The NCCR network partners from the Universities of Basel, Berne, Fribourg, Geneva, Lausanne and Lucerne complement this expertise.
The nccr – on the move will begin its activities in summer 2014.
