Four Countries Seek International Researchers
In an effort to attract researchers, four countries have launched funding programs for international recruitment. Britain has budgeted about $130 million for its Rutherford Fund to lure foreign researchers for visits up to 10 years. In addition, Canada is using around $94 million to recruit up to 35 international researchers for Canada 150 Research Chairs. France is also getting involved, providing $48 million to recruit climate scientists. In relation to France’s efforts, Germany announced plans to join the country’s “Make Our Planet Great Again” initiative.
