The quality of the doctorate is an important issue for PNN. The Dutch doctorate trajectories are renowned for their high quality. Firstly because of the high quality of the research conducted during the doctoral trajectory. Secondly because of the trajectory to train complete independent scientific researchers.
PNN is therefore committed to maintaining the high quality of the doctorate trajectories. We do this by reviewing existing and new policies. In addition, we investigate abuses on a national and local level. However, there are always opportunities for improvement. PNN therefore regularly submits proposals for better policy to parties such as the VSNU, the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science, or the Education Inspectorate.
