Healthcare and wellbeing
How do we keep healthcare affordable, socially responsible and sustainable? What (technological) developments can help to decongest the care sector and organize more tailored care? How do we integrate biological, social and psychological perspectives when examining development over the life course? Scientists from the social and behavioral sciences are working on these fundamental questions together with experts from the healthcare practice, patients and researchers in the fields of economics, public administration, digital sciences, law and ethics.
