Stay ahead of the competition! Attract knowledge migrants.


In a few years, there will be a worldwide shortage in qualified personnel. Due to demographic developments, the largest part of this shortage will be in Europe. Germany, the United Kingdom and Belgium are already experiencing a shortage in healthcare, science and technical professions. It will be a challenge to find enough skilled workers, particularly in the technical and innovative areas.

This cannot be remedied just by investing in education, reducing premature school leaving or stimulating fulltime work by women. Europe will have to attract knowledge migrants from abroad to address the competition from the US, China and other economic superpowers. However, Europe no longer ranks among the top for knowledge migrants. Australia, Canada and the US are more popular. This worldwide competition for the best brains in the world threatens to become a significant problem for us Europeans.
