Our mission & vision

The urgent and complex societal challenges of our time require fundamentally new forms of cooperation that cross boundaries between institutes and disciplines to create new perspectives and solutions. For this reason, TU Delft, Erasmus University Rotterdam and Erasmus MC are joining forces in the Convergence.

In research and education, we are committed to combining our strengths, knowledge and methods to address issues related to climate change, sustainability, pressure on the healthcare system, urbanisation and digitalisation. The delta around Rotterdam and Delft – with its businesses, port, rivers and diverse population – is our living lab. Together with public and private partners, we are building a robust ecosystem for research and innovation.
