According to data published by the Consulta degli emiliano – romagnoli nel mondo (Council of Emilia-Romagna in the World) since 2014 our region is the sixth in the national ranking of expats. At the regional level, this new emigration has increased decisively after 2010 and during the period 2001-2016. Youth between 18-39 years old are those most involved in the phenomenon.
Europe (United Kingdom, France, Switzerland, Germany, Spain) remains the first destination of the expats from Emilia-Romagna followed by America (in particular the United States, Brazil, Mexico, Argentina).
Emilia-Romagna youth living abroad present a richness for the Emilia-Romagna region which, through ART-ER Territory Research Attractiveness, is committed to maintaining relationships and promoting long-distance collaborations with them: from enrichment for outstanding youth who have undertaken an international career, as well as to promote the internationalization and attractiveness of the regional territory.
