SYRIZA government made efforts to reverse the brain drain, Alexis Tsipras says from “Demokritos”

Ο πρωθυπουργός, Αλέξης Τσίπρας (Α) επισκέπτεται το Τεχνολογικό Πάρκο «Λεύκιππος» που βρίσκεται στο campus του Δημόκριτου, Τρίτη 19 Μαρτίου 2019, ΑΠΕ-ΜΠΕ, ΣΥΜΕΛΑ ΠΑΝΤΖΑΡΤΖΗ

In the last four years the SYRIZA government succeeded in increasing the funds directed to research and made efforts to reverse the brain drain, Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said during his meeting with new researchers and scientists at the National Centre for Scientific Research “Demokritos” to discuss the topic: “From brain drain to brain gain”.

  • Tsipras said he had visited Demokritos five years ago in an attempt to turn a spotlight on the issue of the brain drain. From the first moment, he added, the SYRIZA government had made it a priority to reverse this trend. He noted that political will and funds were required to address the problem and, while the SYRIZA government had done a great deal in this area, there were still many more things to be done.

    The prime minister said that a choice made by young people to acquire more education should not be demonised and that the ‘brain drain’ concerned both those that left out of necessity and those who elected to leave and did not have opportunities to return and offer their services to the country, contributing to the effort to restructure Greece’s production base.
