In the Charter for Researchers of the European Commission's young researchers are a scientist in the first four years ( full-time equivalent defined) of their research activity, including research training period.
Young researchers often receive a scholarship , are employed as employees in a research project or are financed through part-time jobs . In contrast to regular employment, scholarships usually lack social security such as statutory pension insurance or maternity leave . They receive support from KISSWIN , a central communication and information platform for young scientists from the Federal Ministry of Education and Research on the Internet.
