Presentation Overview

   Over the past decade, governments and research funding organisations have implemented schemes for young researchers. These schemes help young researchers to develop their own research careers in times in which pressures on academic research are mounting. While these schemes have been embraced almost univocally by main actors in the research system, there is also a growing uneasiness about the situation of young researchers - especially in the life sciences. Often this is translated into requests for higher budgets, but even if countries have budgets to meet these requests, it is doubtful whether that contributes to long term solutions. In his presentation he will present a framework for analyzing research careers, show results from the Netherlands and other European countries and discuss possible solutions.
