The Scientific Advisory Board Social Sciences and Humanities is complete

4 May 2018

The new Scientific Advisory Board Social Sciences and Humanities is now ready. The Advisory Board assesses the suitability of referees to be contacted in funding rounds and assesses the progress of research projects.

In recent months, work commissioned by the NWO Domain Board Social Sciences and Humanities has been done with a view to setting up this new Scientific Advisory Board (WAC). Its members have been appointed by the Domain Board.

The Domain Board considers the Advisory Board as important. This is because the Domain Board works on the principle that the selection of referees and evaluation of progress reports should be done independently and not by experts involved in the project, in the same way that proposals are assessed by independent experts in selection committees.
