Extra finance for refugees in science

8 May 2018

Freud and Einstein are well-known examples of scientists who were forced to flee their home countries. Refugees who want to continue their academic career in the Netherlands now have the opportunity of a one-year appointment. Project leaders running current research projects financed by NWO (the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research) or ZonMw (the Netherlands Organisation for Health Research and Development) can apply for extra funding from NWO.

Apply from 17 May to 13 September

The application has to be submitted by a project leader of a current research project that is already being financed by NWO or ZonMw. Applications can be submitted from 17 May to 13 September 2018 via the NWO site.

Further details about applying and the criteria for submitting a proposal can be found on the NWO site.
