The Young Academy and Royal Academy delighted with NWO’s 'Refugees in Science’ pilot

3 May 2018

The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) has issued a new call for proposals giving researchers who have fled their native country the opportunity to carry out research for a year. They can be given a one-year contract to work on an existing research project. The application can be submitted by the lead project investigator.

The pilot builds on The Young Academy’s Science Buddies project, in which refugee researchers can gain work experience at a Dutch university. NWO is now making money available for paid positions. The Academy and The Young Academy are delighted with this initiative. Information about the call can be found on the NWO’s website

An information meeting has also been scheduled for 2 June 2018.
