Contact in case of questions or concerns
TiSEM offers researchers and PhD candidates various ways to ask questions or to speak about their doubts or their suspicions of possible transgressions.
- Researchers first discuss questions and doubts with their peers, superiors, and colleagues in their direct vicinity in an informal setting. If this does not lead to clarity researchers can contact the head of the TiSEM Research Support Team.
- PhD candidates can consult their contact person at the graduate school or the Graduate Program Coordinator.
- Additionally, all researchers can contact the confidential advisor on scientific integrity Professor A.J. de Zeeuw for any questions or doubts regarding scientific integrity.
