This indicator pertains to membership of prestigious scientific councils and (advisory) committees.
This category includes membership of a national or international research council and advisory body, but also membership of an assessment committee at a Dutch or foreign research institution and of a jury for an important award.
Although the roles involved may vary, experience shows that this indicator is relatively easy to use. Appointments to such positions are based on status and reputation, and as such relatively easy to describe.
Reasoned indicator, as part of narrative.
