Letter of urgency on young scientists during the Covid-19 crisis to Minister Van Engelshoven

July 13, 2020

Young researchers on temporary contracts have been hit particularly hard by the coronavirus crisis. We are writing to ask you to support the work of young researchers in the Netherlands with a continuity funding package of € 350 million.

A letter by De Jonge Akademie, PostdocNL, the Promovendi Netwerk Nederland and all Dutch young academies to ask the Minister to commit to a continuity funding package in support of the up-and-coming generation of researchers. This support would make it possible to extend appointments as needed to a maximum of, for example, six months.
