As of 1 January 2020, Prof. Dr. Peter Sampers RA has been appointed as external member of the audit committee at the Dutch Research Council (NWO). Sampers is professor at the Accounting and Information Management Department of the School of Business and Economics (SBE) and has been involved in UMIO’s iEMFC programme since 2002.
NWO funds scientific research at public research institutions in the Netherlands, especially universities, and covers all scientific disciplines and fields of research. It has earned the status of a public-interest entity and is therefore subject to stricter and more independent oversight. SBE and the Accounting and Information Management Department are very pleased to have a department member who is entrusted with such a significant position.
