‘Pay medical researchers to return’

Top Dutch medical researchers working abroad should be offered a payment to return to the Netherlands say professors Henk Timmerman of Amsterdam University and Douwe Breimer of Leiden University.

The professors say that the Netherlands has an excellent international reputation in researching new medicines but will lose this if nothing is done to keep talented students and graduates in the country, ANP news service reports on Monday.
