The aspects that are evaluated include the quality of teaching, research, acquisition, management and the competence to work in a team.
Teaching and research qualities are equally important and the effort to obtain credits for teaching and research are comparable. Major tasks, other than education and research, are taken into account.
- The quality criteria are predetermined and transparent. They may differ per Sciences Group or specific domain.
- Candidates, having collected the predetermined required number of credits, have access to the assessment process.
- Having obtained the required number of credits does not guarantee promotion; the BAC makes an overall assessment of the academic performance.
- (inter)national scientists will review the scientific quality.
Once the tenure track has started, career steps are made whenever quality criteria are met (including a positive BAC advice). There are no financial restrictions for promotion. Apart from the recruitment procedure, there will be no competition between candidates during the tenure track.
