THIRD GENERATION GLOBALIZATION AND SYSTEMS OF HUMAN CAPITAL DEVELOPMENT

Funder: National Science Foundation (via Urban Institute)

The project examined the changes in globalization of science and engineering work by firms, changes in migration that affect the science and engineering workforces, and education responses and policies. Researchers analyzed these apparent changes to identify more precisely industry-specific and country-specific effects in migration flows and migration dependency; shifts in R&D engineering work; human capital development, by occupation/discipline in the US, Europe, and NIEs, and implications for U.S. education policy for developing the S&E workforce.
