Circulation of Science: Mobility, Precarity and Economic Growth

Circulation of Science is a research project that aims to help resolve the contradiction in Research and Development between recognition of the importance of science in its many forms to Portuguese society and the reality of working in this sector of the economy. Focusing upon a number of key stages in a career in science, the challenges facing employers and employees are explored, taking into account issues arising from a competitive yet hierarchical organisation of science and the need to manage requirements for geographical mobility and cope with precariousness.
