Research Quality

Internal Planning and Control procedures

The Faculty of Health, Medicine and Life Sciences (FHML) Planning and Control procedures are a good example of internal validation. Twice a year, all FHML Schools are evaluated by the FHML Board in so-called ‘planning and control’ sessions. The main evaluation criteria for the Planning and Control meetings are: information management indicators, scientific quality and societal impact.

What does the Research Office offer?

The Research Office coordinates the planning and control procedures within the FHML.

  • Providing the Planning and Control data for the different research units
  • Support the FHML Board in executing the FHML Planning and Control Cycles

Research Quality according to SEP protocol

In accordance with the Standard Evaluation protocol 2015-2021 concerning the quality of scientific research in the Netherlands, the university is obliged to compile a self-evaluation over a period of six years. Moreover, the institute has to be evaluated by an External Review Committee, which involves a visitation. Half way through the six year period, a midterm review must take place, in order to monitor the progress, to sharpen its objectives and to adjust its policy. 

What does the Research Office offer?

The Research office coordinates the research quality assurance process and supports the Schools in setting up the self-evaluation and midterm.

  • Monitoring and coordination of the quality assurance process
  • Support in setting up the self-evaluation and midterm report
  • Qualitative monitoring of the self-evaluation and midterm report against the objectives set by the latest SEP-protocol
