Brain Drain in Eastern Europe
Brain Drain in Eastern Europe 2017-09-22 - 18:30-20:00
Venue: Conference Room F08
Researchers’ mobility is a fundamental pillar of EU research strategy and is therefore strongly facilitated by the European Commission. However, “brain drain” and “brain gain”, the outgoing and incoming flow of highly skilled and trained individuals may influence member states differently. To initiate discussion about how researcher mobility affects Eastern European countries, the FENS-Kavli Network of Excellence is organizing a forum discussion on “Brain Drain in Eastern Europe”.
