Academics regularly face threats, harassment and hate speech. To address this issue, Universities of the Netherlands (UNL), the Dutch Research Council (NWO) and the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) have launched ‘WetenschapVeilig’.
In Netherlands, seven new ‘groundbreaking’ research projects have been awarded grants from the Academy Institutes Research Fund (AIRF).
Climate scientists, united in an advisory body set up by NWO and KNAW, are recommending that a ‘Dutch Climate Research Initiative’ (Klimaatonderzoek Initiatief Nederland) be established as soon as possible.
Des 15 organisations involved in animal testing in Netherlands have signed an agreement, pledging commitment to openly communicate how animals are used in research.
