Centre for Research Innovation, Support and Policy

Welcome to the Centre for Research Innovation, Support and Policy (CRISP) of Maastricht University Medical Center (UMC+) /Faculty of Health Medicine and Life Sciences (FHML), Maastricht University.


CRISP started in 2008 and its task is to create and safeguard optimal conditions to perform excellent research within Maastricht UMC+/FHML. Key concepts are support, infrastructure and (policy)advice. We inform, facilitate and advise both managers/directors and researchers.


CRISP cooperates closely with the Clinical Trial Center Maastricht (CTCM) in order to optimally support scientific research within the Maastricht UMC+. CRISP and CTCM together form the ‘helpdesk’ where Maastricht UMC+’s researchers can go to with all their questions. See Helpdesk.


CRISP is headed by Prof. Jos Smits, director of CRISP and Pro-Dean Research at FHML and consists of three departments: Facilities; Research Policy & Innovation; and the Grants office. The Research Office carries out the activities related to ‘Research Policy & Innovation’ and ‘Grants’; it is the front office to researchers and policy makers.

A new COV (central research facility) is realized at the fourth floor Uns50 near CGSA. This COV is designed for the handling (weighing/dissolving) and storage of CMR-compounds and other highly toxic compounds. Besides that there is also a separate room for performing cell-culturing (ML-II) and other types of experiments. Information about usage can be obtained by
Marcel van Herwijnen.
