With our vision in mind, i4PH stimulates cooperation between professionals from diverse backgrounds.
We achieve this by bringing together experts from the Eindhoven University of Technology, Wageningen University & Research, Utrecht University and UMC Utrecht (and their networks). They collaborate in a multidisciplinary approach at the forefront of research into health, lifestyle, living environment and technology.
In the i4PH program, we prioritize three key activities: research, education and community building.
We foster collaboration among researchers from our four institutes, promoting cutting-edge and innovative research that has a significant impact.
Research initiatives include:
- Seed calls and seed funds
- Pressure cookers
- Research support and help with funding
Our education program focuses on students at our institutes, equipping them with multidisciplinary or transdisciplinary skills that will shape their work and thinking. Additionally, we extend our focus to professional development, ensuring continuous learning.
Educational initiatives include:
- Challenge Based Learning
- Lifelong Learning
We strongly believe that engaging with various academic disciplines enhances our societal impact. Moreover, we recognize the importance of participatory research, which is why we encourage internal networking and collaborations with stakeholders outside our institutes.
Community Building initiatives include:
- Online community
- Partner network
