There is an online survey for Italian researchers abroad, run by an international team coordinated from Madrid, Spain (Universidad Nacional de Educacion a Distancia), looking for junior and senior Italian academics (researchers, faculty and medical staff) working outside Italy to complete a brief survey about this topic (10 minutes). The team proposes ideas to be implemented at the regional level to attract “Italian-brains”abroad to Italian universities. Consequently, it is very important to know the opinion and experience of this human capital. Please participate in this Online Survey. Click here
