Regelmatig promoveren er MMC’ers. Dat betekent dat zij een doctorsgraad behalen. Om te kunnen promoveren hebben de medewerkers wetenschappelijk onderzoek uitgevoerd onder begeleiding van een hoogleraar. Van het onderzoek wordt verslag gedaan in een boek, het zogenaamde proefschrift. Wie er binnenkort promoveren of onlangs gepromoveerd zijn kunt u hieronder vinden:
