Promoting outward mobility of own staff is considered as the most important method to support internationalisation: financial support, language and culture training, incentives in terms of employment, communication.
Framework contracts with foreign institutes also important.
Recruiting international top-level professionals: challenging but may be very influential.
However, requires an attractive and high-quality research community, good physical environment (laboratory), well-know international reputation of the PRO, flexibility in terms of practical working conditions and good personal connections and networks.
The most effective method for promoting internationalisation is to maintain a high-quality research environment
