The FSW offers support in all stages of performing your research.
SOLO Research and Lab Support
SOLO Research and Lab Support plays a central role in facilitating beta-medical research. For more information on what support SOLO can provide, view the Support Policy.
The Bèta Bedrijfsvoeringscommissie is an advisory committee responsible for policy as far as it pertains to beta-medical research and distribution of funding. The committee consists of representatives of the Faculty Board, the Faculty Office, the chair of the lab coordinators and the scientific directors of the institutes.
The lab coordinators are responsible for the day to day running of the laboratories and are the first port of call for researchers wanting to use the labs for their studies. The lab coordinators manage the diaries and the lab keys, and ensure that the labs are clean and tidy.
The freezer coordinators facilitate the storage of biological samples by maintaining an overview of the freezer capacity, the demand for biosample storage, and freezer procedures.
FSW data manager and stewards
During the research, research data must be securely preserved. This means that the integrity, availability and – if required – confidentiality of the data must be guaranteed. Once the research has been completed, the research data must be preserved for the long term together with the metadata, software and other documentation required for reuse. Your data steward can help you preserve your data.
Location manager Giel Zwinkels advises the Faculty and Institute Boards on the (safe) use, allocation, and layout of labs and offices. Additionally, he oversees building activities.
All studies and experiments conducted in the Institute of Psychology and the Institute of Education and Child Studies must first obtain ethical approval in order to protect participants' interests. Research that falls within the scope of the Medical Research Involving Human Subjects Act (Wet medisch-wetenschappelijk onderzoek met mensen, WMO), first must be reviewed by an accredited medical research ethics committee or the CCMO.
