Enhancing Health & Wellbeing

voorbeeld impact2

An aging population requires a new approach to health and wellbeing. People will be able to participate in society longer if they can achieve a good quality of life. The Impact Program addresses the improvement of physical, mental and social health from various fields of study in social sciences, law and data science.

In cooperation with institutions in the health and wellbeing sectors we develop new research methods and innovations in for instance e-health, stress management, prevention, and tailored care.

The digital follow up system for cancer survivors PROFILES is a case in point. In this project we cooperate with the Netherlands Comprehensive Cancer Organisation (IKNL) to collect data about cancer survivors which forms a rich basis for new research.
