Oulu named one of world’s top 13 brain belts

Analysts from Macquarie bank have outlined 13 places where the world’s best and brightest tend to cluster.

Macquarie’s team referred to such regions as “brain belts” — areas which have developed into hubs which attract the smartest people to work in different areas of cutting edge technology.

The list is based on research in a 2016 book by Antoine van Agtmael and Fred Bakker called “The Smartest Places on Earth”.

Unfortunately, no Australian city features, and the broader Asian region didn’t rate a mention either.

Macquarie said that van Agtmael and Bakker identified many other places in addition to the table in the article, “but virtually all were in North America and Europe”.
