Mission & vision

TU Delft, Erasmus University Rotterdam and Erasmus MC are joining forces and integrating knowledge, expertise and methodology. Through convergence, we form novel frameworks that foster scientific discovery and technological innovation.

We are convinced that the healthcare challenges require a completely different approach than we have applied so far. We are going to tear down the boundaries between different disciplines and institutions. We will combine all our scientific strengths, knowledge and methods to realise a thriving ecosystem where researchers, students, society, government, entrepreneurs and industry achieve a stimulating and efficient cross-pollination between their ideas, procedures, instruments and products to create the future of health and healthcare. We will educate the next generation of professionals with interdisciplinary skills and competencies in this ecosystem, where they can interact, inspire, co-create, learn, and strengthen each other.

Convergence for Health and Technology is ambitious to become a global leader in health and technology. We are striving for:

  • Lifelong health, from pre-birth to end of life
  • Socioeconomic equality in health(care)
  • Prevention and early diagnostics to proactively maintain health
  • Individually tailored precise medical treatment for all
