Frank den Hollander concerned about leading scientists leaving the country
More and more scientists leave the Netherlands for leading functions abroad. Frank den Hollander of the project team of NETWORKS and member of the Royal Dutch Academy of Sciences rings the alarm bell in the journal 'de Volkskrant' of 30 September 2015.
Reasons for scientists to choose for a carrier abroad are higher salaries, but moreover the desillusion created by the bureaucratic system as it comes to obtaining scientifc grants.
The increasing migration of leading scientists calls for a formal advise of how to cope with the situation, says Frank den Hollander.
