Recognition & Rewards programme

Current societal challenges demand for more cooperation and a multidisciplinary approach by scientists. Putting into practice the shared ambitions in Dutch academia requires a modernisation of the system of Recognition and Rewards. The modernisation should be designed to improve the quality of each of the key areas: education, research, impact, leadership and (for university medical centres) patient care.

We want to make room for everyone’s talent in Dutch academia. In the Dutch Recognition & Rewards programme we work in cooperation with all universities, university medical centers, reputable research institutes and research funders. We work on: Room for everyone’s talent.
