UNESCO and HP joint project reversing brain drain in South East Europe: UNESCO

UNESCO-Vienna release:

"Today, 30 academics from seven universities across South East Europe will gather together, demonstrating that UNESCO and HP's joint 'Piloting Solutions for Alleviating Brain Drain in South East Europe' project improves research capacities and international collaboration, while contributing to boosting human capital in the region.

"Over the past decade, South East European countries have suffered from emigration of up to 70 percent of skilled professionals, devastating scientific research and higher education capacities at many universities. Conceived by UNESCO in the framework of its strategy for South East Europe, the project was jointly launched with HP in 2003 to provide grid computing technology to universities and financial support to encourage young scientists to remain in the region and cooperate with the Diaspora."
