I am BMS Research Support Policy Advisor since September 2021 and I can support BMS staff on several topics, such as:
Research Evaluation (SEP): I have been coordinating and organizing the process of the BMS research evaluation 2015-2020. Collecting data, supporting the writing team and coordinating the site visit were some of my tasks. Besides the 2015-2020 BMS Research Evaluation I also coordinate the annual cycle for research evaluation.
BMS Internationalization Strategy: I am part of the BMS Internationalization Strategy project group. Together with other colleagues I am working on the BMS Internationalization Strategy (based on the International Dimensions of the UT). Besides the strategy we will also make an implementation plan.
Signature PhD's: In 2019 the BMS Faculty launched the BMS signature PhD initiative to speed up the transition to a truly integrated Social Sciences & Technology Faculty. The core of the initiative consisted of 2 rounds of an internal PhD grant competition for a maximum of six 4-year PhD positions each. The rounds are successfully concluded, the 1st in 2019 and the 2nd round in 2020. BMS Signature PhD positions are a result of the midterm evaluation of the BMS under steαm initiative. More information on the BMS Research Strategy and Research Themes in close connection to the scientific themes of the UT can be found on our websites. I support the BMS signature PhD's and organize monthly meetings for them to interact, share and discuss their obstacles.
