MOSCOW, November 23. /TASS/. It is necessary to demonstrate the prospects for professional growth in Russia to young employees in order to avoid brain drain, Russian President Vladimir Putin said at the meeting of the Council for Science and Education on Wednesday.
"We’ve already seen promising people with no idea where and how to work, being invited overseas and they very often do leave. We have to show them their growth prospects," he said.
According to Putin, both the state and businesses have to spend efforts and resources on strengthening the talent pool of local science. "The number of researchers younger than 39 has increased by a third over the past decades, which is a very good trend on the whole," President said.
