The Young Academy, an independent part of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences, has published a “Beginner’s Guide to Dutch Academia”. It is intended to help senior academics (researchers and teaching staff) who are unfamiliar with the Dutch academic setting, but the authors hope that postdoctoral and doctoral researchers will also find relevant information in it. It address key questions on the structure of Dutch academia, specific research organisations in the Netherlands, the system of higher education programmes and degrees, and the long term picture of HE&R policy. In addition, it offers practical information on financial issues as well as diversity issues and family support.
