Research output

Research output 2017 per type of publication (source: PURE).

Graph
Research themes: AC = Analytical Chemistry; CC = Computational Chemistry; MP = Molecular Photonics; SC = Synthesis & Catalysis. The 'Joint' column contains the number of joint results from collaborations between research groups.

Other output and honours

Research themes: AC = Analytical Chemistry; CC = Computational Chemistry; MP = Molecular Photonics; SC = Synthesis & Catalysis.

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.

table

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. 

Personnel

FTE numbers

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.

Table of results
Research themes: AC = Analytical Chemistry; CC = Computational Chemistry; MP = Molecular Photonics; SC = Synthesis & Catalysis. Notes: 1. Comparable with WOPI categories professor, associate professor and assistant professor; tenured and nontenured staff. 2. Comparable with WOPI category researcher, or non-tenured staff. 3. Standard PhD (employed) and contract PhDs (externally or internally funded but not employed). 4. The Standard Evaluation Protocol combines the Technical support (Technicians) and administrative support (Support staff) in a single category Support.

Finance

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.

Table
Research themes: AC = Analytical Chemistry; CC = Computational Chemistry; MP = Molecular Photonics; SC = Synthesis & Catalysis. The column 'Other' includes the institute's office.

Externally financed projects acquired in 2017 (mln €) per funding type.

Research themes: AC = Analytical Chemistry; CC = Computational Chemistry; MP = Molecular Photonics; SC = Synthesis & Catalysis. Note 1: Budgets were obtained for a total of (in FTE) 15 PhDs, 4,3 PD and 1,2 staff.

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.

Notes: 1. Direct funding assigned via allocation model, incl. matching on project funding, SectorPlan, RPA Sustainable Chemistry. 2. Contributions for HRSMC and CLHC, SectorPlan, RPA Sustainable Chemistry and other external contracts. 3. Faculty overhead, institute overhead, central overhead.
