Mobility is associated with professional development and improvement in the researcher’s academic performance. The loss of skills of migrants though may be considered negative for the of origin country, while the return that follows is important, after their inclusion in an international scientific circuit and the opportunity to participate in important projects .
The factors that support the mobility of researchers are shared with high-level European migrants: higher salaries, career opportunities, access to funding, better research infrastructures.
To provide tools for comparison and development of proposals for the scientific policies of our country, the IX Office of the Directorate General for the promotion of the country system (Bilateral scientific and technological cooperation policies) of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and the Cnr-Irpps have signed a memorandum of understanding to collaborate in an international study on the emigration of Italian researchers. The first step of this project was the launch of an online survey, in which all Italian researchers abroad are invited to participate.
