Planning

All research conducted at Delft University of Technology is assessed every six years. The assessment is performed on the departmental level. Generally, several departments belonging to one research domain are assessed at once and by the same committee. The overall planning for the research assessments at TU Delft by research domain can be found below. In order to safeguard the ongoing discussion about research quality, a midterm is carried out after three years.
