Sally Wyatt appointed to NWO Committee

Sally Wyatt, professor of Digital Cultures in Development, has been appointed to NWO’s new Permanent National Committee for Large-Scale Scientific Infrastructure (in Dutch: Permanente Nationale Commissie voor Grootschalige Wetenschappelijke Infrastructuur), announced in the ‘2025 Vision for Science’ report published by the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science earlier this year.

The committee will commence its work this September and take on the task of creating an inventory of all large-scale research facilities in the Netherlands as well as foreign facilities available to Dutch researchers. Building on this, the committee will determine the need for new facilities, and advise on how to develop them. The results will feed into the National Roadmap for Large-Scale Scientific Infrastructure, which guides NWO funding – with 80 million euros granted every two years to the research facilities listed in the roadmap.

The committee is composed of 12 leading Dutch researchers in four areas: Humanities/Social sciences, Medical/Life sciences, Exact sciences, and Engineering and Applied sciences. The appointees were chosen based on their involvement in Dutch research as well as in society. Wyatt brings to the table an impressive international career with 35 years of experience in research and teaching in the field of technology and society. In addition to her work at the Maastricht University, she is also programme leader of the eHumanities group of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) and director of the graduate research school Science, Technology and Modern Culture (WTMC).
