Conference to examine the phenomenon of “brain gain” in the Baltic / Article


From 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., it is called “Remigration and Brain Gain in the Baltics” and takes place at the Stockholm School of Economics in Rīga.

“When migrants return, the skills, experiences and networks they bring back constitute net gains in human capital, often described as brain gain. But why do migrants return? What do they do when they return? Are they more likely to start a new business? How are their skills valued by employers? These are some of the questions we are exploring with subject matter experts and using the results of a four-year study on Brain Gain in the Baltics.

“We also look to the future; we asked high school graduates and future graduates about their career and mobility plans and expectations. Sixty percent of students plan to go abroad at some point given with their lives. We will be joined by thought leaders, practitioners and students to discuss the topic,” said Kata Fredheim, SSE Riga Executive Vice President and Project Manager.

The conference will be held in English without translation and can be viewed on this webpage.
