'Rebrain Greece' digital platform in operation

rebrain greece

The "Rebrain Greece" digital platform of the Labour and Social Security Ministry aspires to become a modern hub connecting highly skilled workers' supply and demand.

The recently passed labour law 5053/2023, for the first time creates a digital platform, named "Rebrain Greece", for the development of a mechanism to strengthen talented people and connect scientists-workers who live in and outside of Greece with jobs in highly skilled and specialised occupations offered by private sector companies operating in Greece.

This initiative of the Ministry of Labour and Social Security, which attempts to deal with the difficulty of finding executives with specialised skills, which business representatives record daily, is aimed at Greeks who have emigrated and work abroad and those who live in Greece.

Adonis Georgiadis: The goal is to transform Greece into a 'brain gain' country

"Our goal is to transform Greece into a "brain gain" country, to which our young people who left for abroad, during the memorandum years, will return," stated Labour and Social Security Minister Adonis Georgiadis to the Athens-Macedonian News Agency (ANA-MPA), while he underlined that the people working abroad developed additional skills, learned more things and saw how other economies work.

"If we could make them return to Greece, then we would attract not only people who had left, but we would attract people who would be of a higher quality as a workforce. This is a big bet for Greece. With the "Rebrain Greece" platform, I think we can make the beginning," underlined Georgiadis.

  1. Conscription is a bigger problem than finding jobs.

    Brain drain will remain so long as the armed forces demand free labour.

    You can’t even get a passport to fly back to Greece if you haven’t been working for more than 7 years abroad or grew up abroad. And you need a passport because transit countries outside the EU won’t just accept an EU ID for travel.
