Science Comittee

About the Science Committee

The main task of the Science Committee is to advise the Director on the methodological quality of all new research proposals submitted by researchers to be included into one of the EMGOresearch programs. Only after approval of a positive advice from the Science Committee by the Director, a project will be embedded within the EMGOInstitute. In addition, approval of the EMGO+ Science Committee is required before a project can be submitted to the Medical Ethical Committee of the VU University Medical Center.

In addition, the Science Committee gives solicited and unsolicited advice to the Director, coordinates the yearly EMGO+ awards, prioritizes Travelgrant applications and assists in other grant rounds when requested by the Director.

The committee consists of EMGOsenior staff members and meets every two weeks. The Committee includes at least two representatives of each research programme. Read more about the role and composition (current members) of the committee.
