Table 6: EMGO+ scientific output in 2009-2014 for the institute and per program

Table 6 also lists the number of PhD theses completed in 2015. A total of 277 EMGO+ PhD students were working on their thesis within the institute, representing ~139 research FTE (see table 3). Of them 46 PhD students were external, i.e. they were not appointed by VUmc. A total of 93 PhD theses were produced in 2015, the titles of which give a very good overview of the EMGO+ research output (see appendix 6). Figure 6 shows an increase in output (articles and dissertations) while the number of FTEs remains relatively constant.

International benchmarking A major aim of the institute is to generate scientific innovation and impact, for which quality is often more important than quantity. In the Netherlands the research performance of all eight medical faculties is externally benchmarked by the Center for Science and Technology Studies (CWTS) of the University of Leiden. This CWTS analysis has a one-year lag in citations and a two-year lag in publications. Annual Report 2015 | EMGO+ | 40
