Since 2003, research assessments at Dutch universities have been performed on the basis of a national protocol, the Standard Evaluation Protocol (SEP).
This protocol sets out the agreements made by the universities with the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) and the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) concerning the review of publicly-funded research in the Netherlands.
The SEP also stipulates that the research should be reviewed every six years by external and independent experts usually at the level of the research institute.
The reports containing the results of the reviews are public. The reviews concerning UvA research that have been evaluated since the introduction of SEP, can be downloaded via the links below.
