Summary
The Network Institute, one of the VU University of Amsterdam's
inter-faculty research institutes, is looking for a PhD student

projects, exchange of knowledge and the manner in which new product

heterogeneous disciplinary background and are embedded in research
groups. Important is the assessment of the added value of cooperation
within and between research groups in reaching scientific and societal
outputs. 

Elements of the project 
- Assess the added value of cooperation in research institutes according
to researchers and research group leaders. 
- The manner in which the various forms cooperation -- as a consequence
of the role of institutes -influence various aspects of output such as
publications, applications and patents. 
- The manner in which the structure and design of leadership roles in
institutes has an effect on lines of inquiry, 
- Assessment of the interaction at the individual level in the form of
networks, the position of groups vis a vis each other and the
embeddedness in the scientific world employing bibliometric methods.
