Great minds may think alike, but they also tend to think in various directions and from different points of view. They need a focal point in order to achieve great things together, be they scientists, entrepreneurs, teachers, students or innovators. To fill this need, Dynamics of Youth is shaping a hub: the Child Expertise Center (in Dutch: KinderKennisCentrum). A physical as well as a virtual pivot to breed and feed ideas from.
What happens at the Child Expertise Center?
The Child Expertise Center is a central point and breeding ground for innovative and interdisciplinary research, offering possibilities for collaboration between knowledge institutions, social organisations and businesses. Research within the Child Expertise Center is supported and propelled by the application of state-of-the-art infrastructure, such as shared data and lab facilities.
It provides, among others, the infrastructure for YOUth, a large-scale, long-term cohort study, which follows children and charts their development from before birth until the age of 18.
