The second edition of the Recognition & Rewards Festival will take place on February 4th, 2022. We would like to invite everyone who is interested in the Recognition & Rewards Programme. We will discuss the opportunities, challenges and dilemmas of culture and system change with you. Additionally, we offer you several workshops focusing on specific elements of recognising and rewarding academics differently.
The festival will kick off with a plenary session in which we share insights, experiences, and examples from the past year. The festival will then continue with a focus on the subject of ‘teams’. During this session we will discuss results of a one-year research project that focused on team functioning and recognition of teams and individuals, in the context of the University of Twente. After this plenary session we will split up into groups in which participants can discuss these subjects in more depth.
Later in the programme attention will turn to several dilemmas and good practices. We will discuss these dilemmas and good practices in subgroups. The festival will end with another plenary session, in which we evaluate the input provided and reflect on the discussions of the day.
The Recognition & Rewards Festival is an online event, the language used at the Recognition & Rewards Festival will be English and admission will be free.
The festival is organised by the Recognition & Rewards Programme, a partnership between the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW), the Netherlands Federation of University Medical Centres (NFU), the Dutch Denominational Universities (NLU), the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO), Universities of The Netherlands (UNL) and the Netherlands Organisation for Health Research and Development (ZonMw).
