EMGO+ was externally evaluated in 2010 by a European international site visit committee according to the standard evaluation protocol of the KNAW (i.e., the Dutch Royal Academy of Arts and Sciences). The institute, as well as its four research programs, was rated as excellent and received the highest rating for across all domains: quality, productivity, relevance, vitality and feasibility. This external evaluation covered the 2004-2009 period. In 2013 a midterm review of the EMGO+ Institute was conducted by the University Review Committee (‘Universitaire Toetsings Commissie’). The committee concluded that “the results presented over the 2010-2012 period are impressive and the transparent and structured presentation of the institute’s performance in the midterm review is exemplary. The EMGO+ Institute is a strong research institute with research programs that perform at a top level”. In October 2016 the institute will once more be externally evaluated by an international site visit committee.
The excellent reputation of EMGO+ researchers is further illustrated by the many invited lectures given at scientific meetings (appendix 8), the awards and honors they obtained in 2015 (appendix 9) as well as their prominence in the organization of conferences and congresses (appendix 10) and their gate keeping positions as grant reviewers, (associate) editors of international journals or executive board/committee members of academic societies (appendix 11).
