Creating opportunities for disadvantaged children & young adults

Nieuws - 24 juni 2021 - Communication

Healthy Start is a new scientific initiative by Erasmus University Rotterdam, Erasmus MC, and TU Delft. It is led by IDE professor Maaike Kleinsmann, Eveline Crone (Erasmus University), and Vincent Jaddoe (Erasmus MC).

The project aims to help children and young adults who face unequal starting points and live in the Rotterdam-Delft area. Healthy Start aims to create developmental opportunities for new generations by using innovative medical, social, behavioural, and technical approaches.

Within the initiative, IDE will play an important role in the three Convergence Programmes (AI, Data & Digitization; Resilient Delta; Health and Technology). It will lead to new forms of collaborative research that cross the boundaries between institutions and disciplines to create new perspectives and solutions to complex social challenges.
