The assessment system currently in use no longer fits in with the existing zeitgeist and the societal role of academics.
Many academics are now wondering: how can we successfully introduce the new recognition and rewards at universities, institutes and university medical centres in the Netherlands. The Young Academy uses practical examples to illustrate why a new system of recognizing and rewarding is necessary and how it could be applied in the workplace.
Personal experiences from academics
Members from The Young Academy have been looking in their surroundings for specific examples that illustrate why a new system of recognition and rewards is so important and how we can put it into practice. They interviewed eight academics whose experiences and opinions about recognition and rewards are inspiring.
The paper Good examples merit imitation. The new recognition and rewards according to The Young Academy concludes with five specific recommendations for administrators, managers and individual academics.
