Together with its partners, Utrecht University has made plans to tackle fourteen key societal challenges. The collaboration takes place in fourteen hubs. Hubs are the ultimate representation of a new way of thinking: one that is not based on the application or 'valorisation' of previously acquired academic knowledge but on joining forces with others to ponder research questions and strategies
Long lasting multidisciplinary collaborations
The four Life Sciences hubs aim to bring excellent researchers from different disciplines together to work on societal relevant issues and scientific breakthroughs within the framework of One Health, Personalised Medicine & Health, Regenerative Medicine & Stem Cells and Science for Life. The hubs stimulate productive and long lasting multidisciplinary collaborations with public and/or private stakeholders thereby creating shared value and, hence, societal and economic benefit.
