Participants

The Research evaluation natural sciences 1996-2004 distinguishes three levels of aggregation; the SEP distinguishes only two. The first level is that of the Cluster Natural Sciences. As this level has been introduced only quite recently (as part of the Tripos-plan), this will not be evaluated as such.

The second level is that of the Research Institutes and Centres: KVI, MSC, Stratingh, CBN, CIO and CTN. In terms of the SEP’s Appendix 3, this is the Institute level; six institutes and centres participate in the evaluation. This level will be documented in accordance with level A of the SEP.

The third and most detailed level is that of the Research Groups (in Dutch: basiseenheid). The SEP calls this the level of the research programmes; in this Local Supplement and in the Self-evaluation document, the term Research Group will be used. This level will be documented in accordance with level B of the SEP where applicable.

A research group is not a completely unambiguously defined entity. In particular, it is not always clear whether the replacement of the head of a research group (normally a full professor) results in the termination of one research group and the start of another.

There are a few cases where somewhat arbitrary decisions have had to be taken:

The group of Hadziioannou (POLIT) was considered terminated on 30-06-2002.
The group of Sawatzky (OPPFY) was considered terminated on 31-12-2001. With the arrival of Rudolf on 01-03-2003, a new research group was started (OPPDL)
The group of Niesen (NVSF) was considered terminated on 31-12-2002.
Van Loosdrecht continues the group of Van der Marel (VSOPT).
Heeres continues the group of Beenackers (CHTEC).
The group of Wesselingh (FYSCT) was considered terminated on 31-12-2001. With the arrival of Broekhuis on 01-01-2003, a new research group was started (PRTEC).
The group of Kellogg (BIORG) was considered terminated on 31-12-1999.
