Our aim is to turn this hub into a household name among researchers, innovators and other professionals alike.
What is a hub?
Our hub is a central point and breeding ground for innovative and interdisciplinary research, with collaboration between knowledge institutions, social organisations and businesses. Our aim is to turn this hub into something recognizable, into a household name among researchers, innovators and other professionals alike. Research within our hub is supported and propelled by the application of state-of-the-art infrastructure (data and lab facilities).
The DoY-hub will be the focal point for innovative and cross-disciplinary research. Imagine what new and valuable knowledge will come to the fore if we overlap research that focuses on brain and cognition with research focusing on social-psychological and educational factors, and with research focusing on societal and cultural factors.
Our hub will start out with the following projects. These projects will form the core of our activities in the coming years.
