Scientific Emigration

Recently, I heard the news report that China has adopted a government program to return to the country of young professionals and scientists. China, with its enormous reserves of human resources says this program one of the most priority. The Chinese rightly believe that the increase in the share of the economy "high-tech" technologies that will allow them to take the most advanced position in the global economy. This program was adopted by China is not the first time, performing previous (late 90s) helped make him a tremendous breakthrough, making China the second economy is essentially in the world. Now, apparently, is preparing a new Chinese economic breakthrough. In Russia there is no such programs, although us this problem is even more relevant than in China. I know that there is a State Duma deputy Eremeev, from the faction "United Russia", he, before becoming deputy head of the coordinating council of employers in Russia, and suggested adopt the "Irish" experience the return of emigrants.

ie repatriantskie open offices around the world and create all conditions for the return of all thinking Russians working in various fields of science and technology. But apparently, with the crisis and shortage of funds for such proposals have forgotten. Rich countries have successfully used foreign experts, organizing a "brain drain" from other countries. Ahead of the U.S. – by attracting Scientists around the world they know the world's best technologies. Of course, Russia does not have such financial means, as the U.S., but I think the Russian government understands the need for a policy of attracting young scientists from abroad and retain existing staff. A suggestion was made president of the transfer of the best students for free education. This is very good.

Investment in education, the best kind of investment. What next? They finish studies and best leave the country? Scientific body of Russia is very old, the bulk of scientists away for 50 years. Alfred Koch, a few years ago in an interview, said that in future Russia will be only those who know how to dig, and minded people leave the country. Lord ministers and deputies, that this does not happen, and to restore at least some of those who left, must urgently develop a program for the return of scientific staff and begin to implement it, enough of Russia be a raw materials appendage of the West.
