About the annual report

The annual report is an accountability and reference document about the previous year. The report consists of two parts: the Executive Board report and the annual statement of accounts. The Board’s report is about the policies and results in the areas of education, research, operations, and our collaborations, among other things. We also render account with respect to the Quality Agreements for Higher Education, the National Support Program for Education (NPO), and the Administrative Agreement on Higher Education and Research. In the second part, the annual statement of accounts, we set out the financial accountability in tables and explanatory notes.

The annual report is published as a PDF file. For this document, we follow the guidelines that apply to annual reporting for universities established by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science. 

The full annual report 2023 will be published in April.
