Through conducting a survey with social scientists, organization of young scientists training, expert roundtable as well as preparation of policy study we have made an attempt to tackle this serious issue .

Cyril and Methodius University, Faculty of law: a Young Researchers’ Training “How to Improve Research Quality in Social Sciences?” and a National Roundtable ““Research Quality in Social Sciences and Brain Drain Prevention in the Republic of Macedonia: Lessons Learned and Challenges Ahead”. Over 100 participants attended both events. FORS Senior Researcher dr. Michael Ochsner has delivered a training for social sciences students. Additionally, policy recommendations on prevention of brain drain in social science have been formulated and have been published in a policy document (Macedonian and Albanian language).
