    Lawyer – Pro Bono (Dutch Tenancy/Labour Law)

    As a lawyer, I specialise in tenancy law, labour law, IP law (copyright law), corporate law and procedural law.

    My girlfriend studied Russian in Amsterdam and lived in Kyiv for a while. She speaks and reads Russian if necessary.

    If you need legal support in the Netherlands, I can help. I’m a “sociaal advocaat” as they say in the Netherlands; this basically means taking cases pro bono or supported by government funding for people who cannot afford legal support.

    I can imagine I could help if you run into trouble with your landlord, employer or publisher.

    Scientific Exchanges is aimed at researchers who want to host their own scientific event in Switzerland, invite colleagues from abroad for a research visit to Switzerland, or visit their colleagues in another country.

    Scientific conferences and workshops are the two types of event covered by the scheme. Research visits by Swiss researchers to other countries or by researchers from abroad to Switzerland are funded for a period of 1 to 6 months. For scientific events, the travel expenses and food and board costs of participants from abroad are covered, for research visits those of travelling guests.

    A beginner’s guide to Dutch academia

    This guide, an introduction to Dutch research and higher education, serves as a support document for researchers and instructors who are unfamiliar with the Dutch academic setting. It may also provide insight for those who have already been working in Dutch academia for a few years. It was written primarily with new ‘senior’ academic staff in mind, but will hopefully be useful for postdoctoral and doctoral researchers as well. The emphasis lies on professional challenges and opportunities.
