Press Conference on Key Figures 2003-2004 and the 'Brain Drain Study'

November 25, a press conference was held in Brussels to present the most recent version of the 'Key Figures' and the much awaited results of the so-called 'Brain Drain' study.

Concerning the Key Figures, the main message conveyed by Commissioner Busquin concerned the significant slowdown of the EU-15' transition towards a knowledge-based economy.

The second big issue concerned data analysis and policy implications following a study on the mobility of qualified scientists, prepared by MERIT, the University of Maastricht. Empirical evidence has been collected for a number of EU-15 Member States and Central and Eastern European countries. See the MERIT 2003: 'Brain Drain' executive summary.
