Sanquin signs Agreement on Reforming Research Assessment

The Agreement on Reforming Research Assessment sets a shared direction for changes in assessment practices for research, researchers and research performing organizations, with the overarching goal to maximize the quality and impact of research.

The Agreement includes the principles, commitments, and timeframe for reforms and lays out the principles for a Coalition of organizations willing to work together in implementing these changes.

Sanquin Research has signed this Agreement and will commit to this shared vision. This requires assessment on qualitative judgements, for which peer-review by Sanquin's international Scientific Advisory Board is central, supported by the responsible use of quantitative indicators.
