Research quality

The quality of research at Maastricht University (UM) is subject to strict standards. Each six years, the research carried out within the faculties and research units at UM is assessed by an external review committee (ERC) applying methods and criteria described by the Standard Evaluation Protocol for Public Research Organisations (SEP)  . The SEP is established by KNAW (The Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences), NWO (The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research) and VSNU (association of universities in the Netherlands ), and is used to assess all research conducted at Dutch public organizations, such as universities and institutes of NWO and KNAW.
