The structure of the thesis: The thesis consists an introduction, four major chapters with conclusions and recommendations. The four chapters include 14 tables, 27 figures and one map. In addition, a list of 188 bibliographical sources, and 9 annexes. Thesis was presented in 16 academic articles which had been circulated in Europe, Israel, and Asia. Altogether, the length of the current thesis is 148 pages.
Fields of research: The research deals with the issue of the academic mobility of students in higher education as a factor of influence and promoting the fields and subjects of knowledge economy in Israel.
Subject of the thesis: To investigate the interrelationships, effects, and dependencies between the academic mobility of students to and from Israel, and the stabilization of knowledge economy as a future employment-economic factor.
The purpose of the research is to identify the ways in which positive academic mobility, in which the number of international students entering is greater than the number of Israeli students leaving, will affect the field of the Israeli knowledge economy.
The scientific challenge of the research lies in the relationship between the factors influencing academic mobility in higher education and the formation and stabilization of knowledge economy as a national development factor in Israel.
The scientific innovation of this study based on the theoretical development of an updated definition of the contribution of the academic mobility of the Israeli economy with an emphasis on employment and the development of the fields of knowledge economy. By calculating the principles of their determination, analyzing methods to increase the demand for academic mobility and reducing brain drain, the author presents a theoretical mechanism based on strategic and applied cooperation with policy changes in academic mobility and the knowledge economy in Israel.
The theoretical significance of this study is reflected in the proposal of an innovative scientific methodology based on multidisciplinary analysis that points to indicators that represent the relationship between academic mobility of students in higher education and those with economic-technological professions for the state's economy, industry, employment threshold, and especially accumulation of advanced knowledge. The author seeks to use this model to develop the State of Israel's knowledge economy by calculating the principles for determining, analyzing methods for increasing the demand for academic mobility and reducing brain drain.
The scientific problem solved in thesis includes redefining and identifying characteristics and processes related to academic mobility of international students, and local Israelis, along with minimizing the trend of brain drain from knowledge economy in Israel. In addition, the creation of a renewed strategy and the implementation of ideas and processes based on a multidimensional analysis of the knowledge economy through the proposal of a national mechanism that will manage and supervise the required activities. All this with the aim of developing a stable, competitive, and international knowledge economy is designed for the modern economy and industry.
The implementation of the scientific results is executed through the application of the research ideas, conclusions and recommendations in the higher education mechanisms, the Ministries of Economy and Employment, and local authorities, while emphasizing the required adaptation to the culture of decision-making and the unique characteristics of the State of Israel. The model and research ideas are already being implemented in two local authorities in Israel.
