*Description: *

The internationalization of higher education has become of increasing
relevance for the university system. Universities are diversifying and
expanding international collaborations to strengthen the quality of their
research and teaching activities and they encourage students and/or
academic staff to participate in international mobility programs. Mobility,
and in particular Erasmus mobility, has long called attention to study
patterns and trajectories within national and transnational borders.
Likewise, the collaboration in research projects among countries (such as
FP7 and Horizon2020) is a key factor for knowledge diffusion and economic
growth for a country or a region with welfare implications. Several studies
have focused on this topic in order to describe the flows of
Erasmus mobility and the project cooperation, and study the attractiveness
of different territories and countries. In this scenario, social network
analysis can be adopted to better understand the complexity of the
This session aims to highlight the richness and variety of social network
studies in both Erasmus mobility and projects collaboration, suggesting new
frontiers in research on the topic. We are particularly interested in
studies of networks that analyse both phenomena. Topics of
interest include, but are not limited to

   - the role of social networks in studying the Erasmus mobility flows and
   the projects collaboration;
   - the composition, structure, and dynamics, etc. of Erasmus mobility
   flows and projects collaboration;
   - comparative studies of networks;
   - mixed-methods studies of projects cooperation and Erasmus mobility
   social networks;
   - Multilayer, Multilevel and Multimode Networks for projects cooperation
   and Erasmus mobility.
