The Faculty-based talent programme (‘Toptalenten programma’) is intended for top-talents. The aim is to scout potential professors and to offer them a Strategic Chair (Profileringsleerstoel) with the prospect of moving on to a Structural Chair after assessment of their performance and professional growth potential. Agreements are made with the candidates concerning their scientific development and their personal development and leadership potential. Schools are invited to nominate suitable candidates. Every 2-3 years a ‘Toptalent Review’ is organised on the basis of which 8 to 10 candidates are selected.
