Once again positive feedback from the presence of highly skilled
human capital in the scientific system of Friuli Venezia Giulia.
This was reported in the latest edition of "Mobility of
Knowledge", a survey carried out by the CER (Coordination
of the Regional Research Centres) that was presented this morning
at a press conference attended by Loredana Panariti, Regional
Minister for labour, training, education, equal opportunities,
youth policies and research showing data as at December 2013.
16,891 foreign students, researchers and
lecturers have studied or worked at the regional scientific
institutions mapped by the survey (20 research centres, 3
universities and 2 music conservatories). The object of the
analysis was as follows: students enrolled and students under
temporary mobility programs (incoming), permanently employed
researchers and lecturers, researchers and lecturers under
temporary mobility programs (incoming).
Compared to the previous survey, the most significant increase
concerns the number of incoming researchers and lecturers, risen
from 6,474 in 2012 to 8,381 in 2013, up by 1,907
units. Permanently employed researchers and lecturers are
5,216 units. The number of foreign students is
3,296, of which 2,704 enrolled
and 592 incoming.
The survey confirms that most of the incoming
researchers and students come from EU countries.
An increase was reported in the number of researchers and lectures
coming from non-EU countries, Africa and North America whilst the
number of those coming from Asia remains basically unchanged. As
regards students, the survey confirms that the largest part comes
from EU countries. Mathematics, Physical Sciences, ICT,
Engineering, Life sciences and sciences of the Universe represent
the scientific areas chosen by most of the
researchers and lecturers, whilst Social and Human sciences are
generally preferred by students.
