To this day, academic mobility has acquired increasingly marked traits of a true migratory phenomenon. In Italy and Spain, the internationalization strategies at supranational and in-stitutional level, and the presence of "tutor" figures in country of origin and destination could steer mobility choice of foreign researchers and could be driving forces for academic migra-tion.

Keywords: Academic mobility, migration, push and pull factor, internationalization, public research, competitiveness.
