The nccr – on the move is the National Center of Competence in Research (NCCR) for migration and mobility studies, which has been operational since 2014. The NCCR contributes to a better understanding of the character of migration and mobility to Switzerland and the changes in contemporary migration patterns. It establishes an interdisciplinary, innovative, and competitive field of research in Switzerland. Financed by the Swiss National Science Foundation and managed from the University of Neuchatel, the network comprises nineteen research teams from eight universities in Switzerland: The Universities of Neuchatel, Basel, Bern, Fribourg, Geneva, Lausanne, Lucerne, and Zurich. Some 70 researchers and administrative collaborators work at the nccr – on the move.
