The University of Amsterdam has established an external ad hoc committee to probe a possible contravention of the rules for scientific integrity.

The external ad hoc committee has been established following an article in NRC Handelsblad and will investigate whether the rules for research integrity were contravened in the opening speeches and dissertation of our former rector magnificus, Dymph van den Boom. 

Obviously, the greatest possible care is required. We will only take a position once a proper and independent investigation has been carried out in accordance with the Netherlands Code of Conduct for Research Integrity of the Association of Universities in the Netherlands (VSNU).
