Abstract: Economic and social transformations have accelerated global competition for international research professionals (IRPs). Yet, the number of IRPs in the Italian region of Tuscany remains low. What are the causes? This article discusses factors and barriers to sustainable attraction of IRPs in Tuscany. Particular attention is paid to organizational, policy-related, economic and human factors. The article concludes by considering regional-level policies to improve attraction and recruitment potential, and to achieve the ultimate goal of sustainable management of regional research capacities.
