Israel's government has approved a plan to create a series of research centers at universities -- with a budget of more than $300 million -- to try to attract back to the country scholars who have left for positions elsewhere, Haaretz reported. The issue of brain drain has been attracting more attention in Israel, with fears that many top academics move to the United States. Eventually, 30 research centers will be created. Two of the first centers are expected to focus on economics and on computer science.
