MSC contribution to the HORIZON 2020 project ’Global mobility of employees’



Associate Professor Mette Zølner and PhD students Kerstin Martel and Ivan Vulchanov are involved in the large-scale EU Project “Global mobility of employees” (GLOMO).


The project focuses on understanding global mobility into EU countries and within the EU and its impact on careers.


The objectives of the project are

  • “to systematically generate knowledge about the mobility phenomenon and its implications (success factors, effects and added value);
  • provide trainings to (further) develop early-stage and senior researchers understanding the complex multidisciplinary phenomenon of mobility, and
  • suggest relevant implications for individuals, organisations, the European societies and economies”.

GLOMO is divided into 15 sub-projects, each undertaken by a PhD student employed by the project.  As mentioned, two PhD students are hosted by MSC and both are supervised by Associate Professor Mette Zølner, who is also the GLOMO coordinator at CBS. The two PhD projects are:

  • Kerstin Martel: “Creating identity: A narrative approach”
  • Ivan Vulchanov: “Managing language perspectives on an international career: A study in MNCs with English as corporate language”

Project organisation
Professor Dr Maike Andresen from the University of Bamberg, Germany, is the overall coordinator of GLOMO, which has eight partner institutions from six EU countries. The project has received funding from the European Union’s H2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No. 765355. It started in January 2018 and will run for 48 months.

A kick-off workshop was held in Hamburg in September where all 15 early stage researchers and their supervisors met for critical discussion and exchange of ideas about their shared topic of global mobility. The next project meeting will be held at CBS on January 21-25, 2019.
