Philip Eijlander Diversity Program
The Philip Eijlander Diversity Program has increased the inflow of (inter)national women in higher academic positions, by creating 19 extra positions on the level of full, associate and assistant professor. These talented scientists advance the research agendas of all five the Schools. The overall goal is an inclusive work climate where quality prevails.
