The EMGO+ institute has a number of institute specific resources that strongly facilitate scientific integrity and the quality of all phases of research, including study design, data collection, data analysis and reporting. It is clearly recognized that our role is to provide an environment that encourages good conduct in research and discourages misconduct, and to provide tools that maximize high quality research. However, as the institute directorate has no formal role in the governance of research personnel, the responsibility for actual behavior remains with the department heads.
Annual Report 2013
In this annual report we present with pride and pleasure the core information about who we are, what we do, what we strive for, and what we have accomplished. You will find the information organized in a largely similar way as in 2012. This reflects the standardization and harmonization of the annual report cycle across all VU University / VU University Medical Center research institutes, using the Standard Evaluation Protocol 2009-2015 of the Royal Dutch Academy of Science (KNAW) as the main guideline.
We hope you will enjoy reading this 2013 report!
