"Brain gain ? the instruments"
The Hague, Netherlands
If Europe is to remain a competitive and dynamic knowledge society, it needs more highly educated people. In fact, more than our own higher education institutions can deliver. Therefore, keeping Europe attractive for international partners in science and applied sciences is a dear necessity. Some European countries are well aware of the global competition for talented people. However, Europe as a whole has just started to develop instruments for that competition. But how do these instruments perform? The conference offers an opportunity to discuss the effectiveness of these instruments, to propose new instruments and national policies, and to formulate recommendations for the existing EU instruments.
