Tele-Montenegro, from Brain Drain to Brain Gain


(PRWEB) October 07, 2012

Many developing countries and those in economic transition like Montenegro have suffered from the brain drain phenomenon. There are more Montenegrins living outside of the country than living in the country, says Milan Maric, Director of S&T Group in Montenegro and Co-Chair of the Millennium Project Node in Montenegro. Countless conferences, papers, and programs have tried to keep talent from leaving countries like ours and tried to get those who have left to return, but with little success.

Its a little bit like computer dating, said Dr. Sanja Vlahovic, Minister of Science, and co-Chair of the Montenegrin Node of The Millennium Project. People in Montenegro can go to the Tele-Montenegro website and enter their needs help in business planning, grading papers or tele-teaching, overseas representatives, etc., and Montenegrins outside the country can enter what skills they can offer and search for those who would like assistance from outside the country.

The tele-nation concept was proposed in 1997, in the first of 16 annual State of the Future reports produced by The Millennium Project to help address the brain drain problem and reduce economic development gaps.

The Millennium Project is a global participatory think tank with 46 Nodes around the world. Montenegro is one of the newest Nodes of the Project. These Nodes identify thought leaders, scholars, and business planners who can participate in global futures research and make the results available to the people in their countries. They initiate projects like Tele-Montenegro with the support of The Millennium Project system of Nodes around the world. Each year, The Millennium Project updates and improves insights and strategies to help build a better future for all.
