Radboudumc organizes 3 Research Integrity Rounds each year. We invite all students, PhD candidates and senior researchers to attend this event. The Research Integrity Rounds focus on both students and researchers particular for the interaction between these future and already experienced scientists.
Guest speaker on 9 March 2020 is Frank Miedema. Miedema is Vice Rector for Research and chair of the Utrecht University Open Science Program. He studied biochemistry in Groningen and obtained a PhD from the University of Amsterdam. After a career in biomedical (HIV/AIDS) research in Amsterdam, from January 2009 to March 2019 he was dean and vice chairman of the Executive Board at the University Medical Center Utrecht.
Miedema is one of the initiators of Science in Transition (2013) who argued that science and in particular the academic incentive and reward system is in need of fundamental reform to increase quality and impact. Next to Science for Science, the impact on society must be valued more and societal stakeholders should be involved more in the production of knowledge.
Date: 9 March 2020
Time: 18.30 until 20.30 hrs at the latest (registration with sandwiches 18.00 hrs)
Location: Hippocratesroom, route 77 (Study Center Medical Sciences)
