Efficiency of the doctoral research path
All PhD candidates conducting research with the primary aim/obligation of graduating, based on a 0.8-1.0 FTE contract. This includes PhD candidates with employee status and contract PhD candidates without employee status. The second category receives external funding or a university scholarship to conducting research under the authority of the research unit with the primary aim of graduating.
The graph below shows the duration of promotion tracks at HIMS (from start to hora est) in months for the past years. Each dot represents a single PhD. The table below presents the median promotion time in months per year. Externally prepared promotions are not taken into account in these figures.
The table below presents the HIMS staff numbers (average headcount in 2017) and in Research FTE. Research FTE means net time available for research as full-time equivalents (FTE) per employment type. The numbers are based on an input of 0.5 FTE per FTE Scientific staff, 0.9 FTE per FTE Post-docs, 0.75 FTE per FTE PhD students, and 1.0 FTE per FTE Technicians, Visiting Fellows and Support staff. Detailed information on these numbers is available as supporting information. The following tables total the complete HIMS staff as full-time equivalents (fte) per employment type per research theme.

Research project funding
The HIMS institute is financed via different funding streams:
Direct funding (eerste geldstroom) is the funding HIMS receives from the university to cover to main costs for permanent staff, support, building and overheads. The university may grant Strategic project funding or Research priority areas, which also count as direct funding category.
Most research grants (tweede geldstroom) are funded by national or European funding or research agencies like NWO and KNAW.
A third funding component is contract research (derde geldstroom), directly paid by companies, governments, European Research Council or other third parties.
Last but not least HIMS welcomes a group of guest researchers. These are usually PhD students with a scholarship (bursalen) or senior researchers employed elsewhere having a sabbatical. The tables below give an insight into the distribution of funds and the funding of staff salaries only.

HIMS result 2017 (k€)
The HIMS result of 2017 is a negative -k€ 72, largely due to a loss in EU- and contract research. A larger negative result was budgeted, so the negative result was expected and will be compensated in the following years.
