Roadmap APH-QoC research program 2017 - 2020

The APH-QoC Roadmap comprises four themes:


The main goals of the ‘Research’ domain focus on internal collaboration and cohesion, the promotion of national and international visibility and consolidation. We strive to continuously enhance the connection/ collaboration between the APH-QoC researchers, but also between the APH-QoC researchers and researchers from other institutions. This can be achieved by interactive sessions, joint AMC-VUmc internships and the development of a platform that can enable and stimulate the exchange of methods and tools. In addition, we aim to develop and execute joint research proposals, for example on the extraction and connection of large datasets and registries. To gain more national and international visibility we aim to stimulate the organisation of (international) conferences, and to increase scientific output by APH-QoC researchers (such as active participation in (inter)national conferences and peer-reviewed publications)


The main goals of the ‘Society’ domain focus connecting projects to societal themes, consolidate APH-QoC as an active societal organisation, and strive for (inter)national acknowledgement for being a societal relevant organisation. In order to achieve these goals we aim to organise learning networks, improve the integration with society and strengthen our PR services and media output.

Human Resource Development

The main goals of the ‘Human Resource Development‘ domain focus on building internal work-relationships resulting in a shared identity that will be communicated to stakeholders and other third parties. We aim for every APH-QoC member to enjoy career benefits as a result of APH-QoC’s reputation and strive for an open- and learning organization culture. Continuous education and career support tailored to the needs of APH-QoC members are core activities over the years.

Implementation and Valorisation

The goals of the ‘Implementation and Valorisation’ domain focus on developing and establishing APH-QoC expertise. This will be supported by an Implementation and Valorisation taskforce and the training of APH-QoC implementation professionals resulting in the establishment of an APH-QoC center of expertise that is available to serve every APH-QoC member. In addition, we aim to encourage and ensure private and public collaboration, firstly by exploring existing collaborations in the APH-QoC context. Subsequently, an action plan will be drafted aimed to further develop and establish collaborations with the private and public sector.
