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 staff, students, society, government 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 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


Convergence for Health and Technology has the ambition to become a global leader in health and technology. We will create a vibrant ecosystem in which researchers, students, clinicians and entrepreneurs interact, inspire, co-create, learn together, and strengthen each other. In this ecosystem, the next generation of professionals with interdisciplinary skills and competencies are educated.
