New website research programme Digital Society

On 15 May the new website about the research programme Digital Society has been launched.

In the research programme thirty professors of the fourteen Dutch universities join forces and are working together to secure the Netherlands leading international position in the field of human-centred information technology and to find solutions to global challenges. The research programme focuses on seven important societal themes on which digitalization will have a great impact: Citizenship & Democracy, Responsible Data Science, Health & Well-Being, Learning & Education, Work & Organisations, Digital Cities & Communities and Safety & Security.


Five professors from the Leiden-Delft-Erasmus alliance have been appointed to the new research programme, including Andrea Evers, Professor of Health Psychology. Evers comments on her participation in the new programme in the video below.
