The European Comitee of the Regions defines brain drain in its report “Addressing brain drain: The local and regional dimension” as:

“…the result of growing competition for talent and is found in regions where there are weak incentives for highly skilled workers (and students) to remain. More specifically, the brain drain phenomenon refers to a region’s permanent loss of skilled workers or students. Local and regional authorities in these regions have to cope directly with the socio-economic effects caused by the significant loss of talent.”
