Scientific Integrity

Scientific independence

Performing ancillary activities, such as external advising or management work, generally has a positive effect on the connections that a scientist makes with society. This type of activities therefore perfectly fits with the entrepreneurial attitude that the University of Twente wants to encourage amongst her academic staff. In order to make clear agreements about this and guarantee the scientific integrity, the UT follows the sectoral scheme covering ancillary activities. These regulations apply to all Dutch universities.
