Rapport: Impact COVID-19 pandemie on scientist

The COVID-19 pandemic is having a significant impact on the work and well-being of scientists. The Jonge Akademie and the National Network of Women Professors, in collaboration with the Universities of the Netherlands (VSNU | UNL), investigated the impact of the first lockdown period on the work and well-being of scientists in the Netherlands. They also make recommendations to limit the possible consequences of this.

For this research, a questionnaire was sent out to all academic staff at Dutch universities. Nearly 6,000 scientists completed the questionnaire. This makes it the first sector-wide study into the impact of the pandemic. The results of this study relate to the first lockdown period (March – June 2020).
