Italy: Brain Drain or Brain Circulation?
Keywords:Italy, brain drain, brain circulation, Italian scientists, Europe, scientific diaspora
Giving a Voice to Italian Scientists in Europe, a research project based on 83 in-depth interviews and a subsequent online survey, shows that transforming brain drain into brain circulation or into a potential scientific diaspora is not an easy task. Overturning Italy’s low level of investment in R&D and building reciprocal acknowledgment and trust between scientists abroad and in their country are identified as prerequisites for this transformation.
