Refugees with a scientific background may soon find it easier to find work in the Dutch academic world. Science financier NWO in The Hague is launching an experiment in which refugee scientists can get an appointment with a Dutch research group, NOS reports.

This experiment involves 750 thousand euros, enough to appoint eight to 15 people with a master's or doctor's degree for a year. The program, called Refugees in Science, was established in cooperation with KNAW, De Jonge Akademie and and the Dutch foundation for Refugee Students.

The tiny catheter-camera takes 2,500 pictures in between contractions of the heart so more detailed imaging is literally done in a heartbeat, Professor-Ingénieur Ton van der Steen told NOS.
