Pure & VU Research Portal FSW

Last updated on 5 December 2022
You can find all information about Pure & VU Research Portal on this page.

VU Research Portal

The VU Research Portal presents the personal web pages (PWP) of the scientific staff of the VU. For the visibility of our faculty and our scientific staff it is important that all our researchers and lecturers are visible for the visitors of the website. Therefore, we ask you to set up and maintain your personal profile page.


The system used for adding or changing information presented on your profile page is called PURE. PURE is directly connected with the VU Research Portal: what you change in PURE will be visible on the VU Research Portal (after waiting a few hours).

You can find the (small) ‘Log in to PURE’ link at the bottom of all VU Research Portal pages, (wherever you are in the Research Portal).
