At the start of the new academic year, the Recognition & Rewards Committee proudly presents the vision of Radboud University on Recognition & Rewards. This vision aims to create a new balance in working and pursuing a career in science. Radboud University aims for change that is supported as broadly as possible in the areas of quality, collaboration, career diversity in science and the human dimension, according to the vision document.
From Roundtable dialogues held with various target groups over the past year, a clear picture has emerged of the need and opportunities for change. The dialogue started with the academic staff, but the changes apply to all layers and to all employees who contribute to the core tasks of education, research, social impact, leadership, and patient care.
In the coming years, we will work together to initiate the necessary changes within the system and the culture of Recognition and Rewards. Our goal is to maximise the impact on the well-being of our scientists. More information on the Recognition and Rewards programme and our new vision can be found on our website.

Radboud Reflects: Teaching and Tenure
On October 5, World Teachers Day, the Recognition and rewards programme together with Radboud Reflects organise the dialogue session Teaching and Tenure. Traditionally, academics investigate and educate. However, both disciplines are not always valued equally. Come and learn from scholar of law and 100%-teacher Sandra Arntz and former director of education of the Faculty of Arts Edwin van Meerkerk, what is needed to properly value the education of the next generation.
The event is in English and participation is free of charge. Please register.
