Ancillary activities regulations

At TU/e agreements have been made with full professors and other staff about informing management regarding ancillary activities. On the basis of clause 1.14 of the Netherlands Universities cao, staff is obliged to officially report ancillary activities. The parties to the collective labour agreement have established a sectoral scheme covering ancillary activities which has come into effect on 1 July 2017. This scheme forms part of the cao, as stated in Appendix J. So this sectoral scheme applies also to the TU/e. Please find the sectoral regulation on ancillary activities under downloads on this page. There is an appendix to the scheme with frequently asked questions by employees.

Additional agreements have been made with the Minister of Education, Culture and Science about the transparency of ancillary activities undertaken by full professors. As a result of this agreement all ancillary activities of TU/eā€™s full professors are listed on their personal detail page, which can be viewed in the TU/e employee database via ā€˜Search staffā€™. Each full professor is fully responsible for his or her data being up-to-date on the employee detail page.

TU/e takes the transparency of the ancillary activities in very seriously en has intensified the supervision on the ancillary activities. On a regular basis we examine the accuracy of the information displayed on the personal detail pages of TU/e staff. Furthermore the topic ancillary activities is a recurring component of the R&O annual reviews. 

Employees need permission from the TU/e for activities outside the TU/e, which could have meaning for the performance of the employee at the university or for the interests of the university.

A dispute can be submitted insofar as it relates to refusal of permission to perform outside activities. TU/e employees can find more information on the intranet.
