Vision elaborated in plans for each organisation unit
The vision will be elaborated in nine concrete proposals that will be submitted to GOR NWO-I for advice.
Meanwhile, GOR NWO-I has received plans for operations in five domains: Strategic Support, Communication, Accommodation & Facilities Management, Health & Safety and Environment, and Legal Affairs & Privacy. The remaining four plans for ICT & Security, Finances & Control, Procurement, and Personnel & Organisation will follow this month or in October. The plans for Finances & Control, Procurement, and Personnel & Organisation provide for the formation of joint service units for the institutes. The decision-making concerning all plans should be completed this year. Finally, an organisation plan for the NWO-I office will be elaborated too, as soon as all other requests for advice have been submitted to GOR NWO-I. In this plan, the effects of all proposals for improvement will be brought together.
More information will be provided in the Inside NWO-I of November/December 2022. Meanwhile, the employees involved will, of course, be kept informed via their own institute. And also via the programme organisation at the NWO-I office, where these changes concern the formation of joint service units.
The members of the steering group that coordinates the Development Operations programme are: Marco de Baar (director DIFFER), Stan Bentvelsen (director Nikhef), Paula van Tijn (institute manager AMOLF), Annemieke Beers (institute manager SRON), Michiel van den Hout (head Strategic Support NWO-I office) and Jan van der Boon (chair/ director of operations NWO-I).
For questions about the programme, please contact the director or institute manager of your own institute. Alternatively, you can also contact the secretary of the steering group, David van Walderveen.
