What is Recognition & Rewards?
Recognition & Rewards is a national movement to achieve a more modernized and balanced academic system. This movement was launched with the publication of the attached position paper 'Room for everyone's talent' by VSNU, NFU, NWO, KNAW, and ZonMW in 2019.
The goal is to change the culture in the Dutch and global academic, to recognize and value all tasks of our employees. Not only focus on research results, but also on recognition for tasks in the areas of education, impact, leadership, patient care and, specifically for the NWO Institutes, the national role.
You can find more background on the Recognition & Rewards movement, the position paper, visions of other knowledge institutions, and discussions at https://recognitionrewards.nl/
What steps is NWO-I taking?
NWO-I embraces the national and international efforts to modernize our definitions of academic success. Within NWO-I, we are focusing on five key points: Research, Impact, Education, Leadership and the National role of the institutes.
In the coming period, we will be implementing an action plan around these five spearheads across the whole of NWO-I. It is an extensive plan, which is divided into a number of steps. Not everything needs, or indeed can, be done at once, and a lot of what is already happening at the institutes fits seamlessly into this process. It is also the express intention that we will learn from each other and share good practices.
If in the meantime you have thoughts or worries you want to share, feel free to contact one of the members of the project group or the representative from your career layer or institute at the Committee.
