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

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