Greece needs new, modern jobs to bring back young scientists, National Research Center chief says

The president of the National Research Center Vassilis Grigoriou, in an interview with the Athens-Macedonian News Agency (ANA) on Monday, stressed the need to create jobs in order to motivate young people return from abroad.

The best motivation for their return would be to find a job closely related to the one they did abroad and a state governed by the rule of law, he added.

Grigoriou also highlighted the need for Greece to develop activity in innovative sectors, such as Information Technology, Biomedicine and Renewable Energy Sources.

Moreover, he talked about the activities of the National Research Center, which was founded in 1958, linking it to the Greek diaspora scientists, while at the same time addressing an open invitation for cooperation to the 300,000 young Greek scientists who have gone abroad in recent years.
