Convergence Alliance

TU Delft, Erasmus University Rotterdam and Erasmus MC join forces in the Convergence Alliance. The urgent and complex societal challenges of our time ask for fundamentally new forms of cooperation, whereby the boundaries between institutes and disciplines are crossed to create new perspectives and solutions. In research and education, we are committed to combine our strengths, knowledge and methods to address societal challenges such as climate change, sustainability, pressure on the healthcare system, urbanisation and digitalisation. Within the alliance we are working on a number of societal challenges: Resilient Delta, Health & Technology, AI, Data & Digitalisation and Pandemic & Disaster Preparedness. On these challenges we collaborate with a large number of public and private partners in South Holland and beyond. Using the region as living lab, the Convergence Alliance thus creates a leading research and innovation ecosystem in South Holland, with great (inter)national appeal and ambitions.
