Prof. Jan Hogendijk (Mathematics) has been appointed as one of six members of the Netherlands Board on Research Integrity (LOWI), which advises on alleged violations of principles of research integrity.
With the departure of Iris Sommer (Medicine) to the University of Groningen, Utrecht University lost its representation in the LOWI. Prof. Hogendijk has been appointed for a term ending in September 2022, after which he may be re-appointed for another term.
The LOWI was founded in 2003 by the KNAW, NWO, and VSNU to advise the boards of the member universities and institutes on alleged cases of violations of research integrity. The members are nominated by the LOWI and appointed with the approval of the VSNU, KNAW, and NWO.
