From the time of the foundation of Maastricht University in 1974, educational innovation has been explicitly incorporated in its mission statement. In 1982 the education research programme was mandated. The research has supplied evidence to the educational experiment that the Maastricht programme embodied, especially in the early years. Over the years, the research programme has developed into a well-established research strand within the FHML. The two organizational conditions — academic status for educationalists and a recognized research programme — have been critical for education research in Maastricht. This chapter discusses the aims and rationale of the research programme, description of the research programme, critical success factors, risk factors, and future challenges.

Keywords: critical success factors; risk factors; medical education; problem-based learning; research programmes
