Within Amsterdam Movement Sciences we are in the process of establishing a Science Committee. The Science Committee will replace the CWO and Research committee that were active within MOVE research institute amsterdam. The new committee will hold approximately 10 members including a statistician and all three research programs, expertise areas, and the participating partners will be represented.

The tasks of the committee will be (among other):

  • Judge and offer advice on research proposals;
  • Co-judge internal AMS calls;
  • Judge TSP from PhD candidates (research proposals and training plans);
  • Quality policy and quality safeguarding within the institute.

Visit the webpages of the METc for protocol templates, patient information letters et cetera.
