How do I add a researcher or observer to my project?


If a person is already known to us and employer or department/manager aren’t changed, a mail can be sent with name and employer to microdata.

If a person is not known to us or employer or department/manager has changed, please filled out the Excel 'Worksheet for new researchers' to be found below. Sent it to microdata.

Always put the project number in the subject of the mail.

PLEASE NOTE: researchers must have a valid contract with an authorised institution, see Institutions and projects. Permitted types of contracts are:

  • Permanent or temporary employment with employment contract;
  • Intern with Internship agreement;
  • Seconded person with a secondment agreement;
  • Temporary agency worker, stand-in worker, on-call worker with associated agreement.
