Objectives This paper aims to understand the social significance of 2008 Eurozone crisis on Portuguese scientists’ migration decision-making. Design Drawing from a mix-method strategy from the Brain Drain and Academic Mobility from Portugal to Europe (BRADRAMO), five individual portraits (Lahire, 2002) are analysed. Study Limitations / implications Further research needs to be conducted to understand the impact of knowledge migration on the Portuguese scientific system. Findings Academic mobility is the main lever for scientific migration. Portuguese scientists aspire for healthier career opportunities. Even though, the 2008 Eurozone crisis and its effects may not drove them from the country, have prevented them from returning, aggravating the brain drain.
