Quality Assurance

The rules and regulations of the Standard Evaluation Protocol of the Association of Universities in the Netherlands (VSNU), the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) and the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO) require research institutes to conduct:

 a formal assessment of research once every six years.
 a less formal mid-term assessment of research once every three years.

The last formal assessment took place in 2017 and applied to the period 2011-2016. The last mid-term assessment was conducted in 2015.
