Membership (formal, guest and associated)
The research school was founded in 1994 as an UvA, VU and UL collaboration. PhD students, postdocs and staff members of UvA, VU and UL can become an official member, or a guest member in case they are actively involved in the HRSMC but formally an official member of another Research School (e.g. NIOK or Casimir). Besides the official and guest membership, there is the associated membership for PhD students, postdocs and staff members outside the UL, VU and UvA. This membership has been established in 2016 when staff members from the Radboud University Nijmegen (RU) expressed their wish to the HRSMC board to become member of the HRSMC as well.
