Carolien van Ham on Team Recognition

October 17, 2023

On the latest episode of our podcast TjongeJonge, Carolien van Ham explains how her department focuses on team achievements.

Carolien van Ham was tired of the constant competition in research and joined a department where things are organised differently. Collaboration and team performance, and hiring people with different skills and a collaboration mindset is now what she aims for. At her department at the Radboud University Nijmegen a research prize was awarded to a team instead of individuals. ‘Potentially we could generate way more ideas, and science could go way faster if we would be a little bit less competitive and a little bit more collaborative.’ 

Carolien van Ham is Professor of Empirical Political Science at the Radboud University Nijmegen.
