CAPHRI Midterm Evaluation 2017-2019

On Tuesday 1 December 2020, CAPHRI will host an assessment committee that will be reviewing the performance of CAPHRI and our six Research Lines during the period 2017-2019. The primary aim of the midterm evaluation is to reveal and confirm the quality and the relevance of the research to society and to improve these where necessary.

The assessment committee consists of members of CAPHRI’s Advisory Board. The committee reaches a judgement based on the self-evaluation provided earlier by CAPHRI, additional documents, and interviews with delegates involved (CAPHRI board, Research Line chairs and PhD representatives) during a site visit on 1 December.

The full programme of the site visit can be found below. The interviews in the afternoon are closed sessions. The presentations by our Scientific Director and Research Line chairs in the morning are public for all CAPHRI staff members via a live stream for which all staff members will receive a code.

Standard Evaluation Protocol (SEP)

The assessments are carried out using the Standard Evaluation Protocol (SEP) that was established by the Association of Universities in the Netherlands (VSNU), the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) and the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO). Every six years, committees of external experts assess the various faculties and research groups on the basis of this protocol.

The key assessment criteria are:

  1. Research quality
  2. Relevance to society
  3. Viability (the extent to which the unit is equipped for the future).
