Psychology Research Review: The Faculty of Psychology and Neuroscience is one of few centres world-wide able to do this work

In 2017 an International Review Committee evaluated the research in Psychology at nine Dutch universities. On 19 September 2017 it was the Faculty of Psychology and Neuroscience’s (FPN) turn to be reviewed according to the Standard Evaluation Protocol 2015-2021 (adopted by KNAW, VSNU, and NWO).

The committee reviewed our faculty’s overall strategy and targets, the quality of research and its societal impact, as well as the viability of the research groups.

FPN’s research is organised within the five departments: Clinical Psychological Sciences, Cognitive Neuroscience, Methodology and Statistics, Neuropsychology and Psychopharmacology, Work and Social Psychology. However, the faculty’s research has been scored as a whole, not by the individual sub disciplines.

The FPN Faculty Board is very proud of the results of the review and of the hard work the faculty’s academic and support staff have done over the past years. 

Below you will find a summary of the report.
