APH Affiliations
We ask all AMC, VUmc, VU and UvA colleagues of the Amsterdam Public Health research institute to add ‘Amsterdam Public Health research institute’ (in Dutch publications: ‘Amsterdam Public Health onderzoeksinstituut’) as additional affiliation in publications as of January 1st, 2017. This will improve our brand awareness and recognition of the scientific and societal efforts of Amsterdam Public Health.

Business development

You can contact business development whenever you have an idea or innovation that might be interesting for a wider audience. Or maybe you want to set up a collaboration with an external partner. Questions range from app development to teaming up with public- and private partners in collaborations. This can be forming a research collaboration that attracts external funding or creating a spin-off company.

Together with business development you will assess your idea, invention or collaboration from many perspectives to ensure a thorough review of the opportunities and potential pitfalls. E.g. What public health problem is going to be solved? Who is your audience/ target group? What is the cost-effectiveness of your solution? And what are competing solutions? After a successful assessment, business development can also assist you in getting your idea, invention or collaboration funded. For more information please contact Davey Groothoff.

Scientific Quality Officer/Committee

The main task of the Scientific Quality Committee (SQC) is to advise the Directors of Amsterdam Public Health (APH) on their scientific quality policy, and to support the quality of research within APH. The Committee does this by facilitating the embedding and peer review of research projects, as well as by providing information and tools to improve the quality of research.
