At Erasmus MC, the first Convergence Square was officially opened just before the summer holidays. In this first Convergence Square people can collaborate on the Convergence of Health & Technology. “The fact that we have created the first meeting space so quickly shows the enormous energy behind the whole convergence initiative,” said Ernst Kuipers, President of the Executive Board of Erasmus MC.
To get things cooking and to facilitate converging conversation between the three institutions, we created this first Convergence Square (which is actually rectangular :). We offer workspaces/ lab room/ event space that can be booked on a daily basis or for a current project. In short:
- Lobby for hosting events (capacity: 30 – 40 people)
- Workspaces (capacity: 2 – 4 people)
- Large rooms perfect for brainstorm sessions/ or small prototyping workshops (capacity 4-8 people)
So, no perminent rooms available?
Correct! To enable the development of crosscutting convergence we like to keep the available space flexible. That’s why we provide room for temporary projects. Feel free to get in touch with us for more details. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org

Green Intensive Care Room
In September, three IDE students began working at the new Green Intensive Care Room in the Convergence Square at Erasmus MC. Their mission? Find ways to limit the environmental impact of the healthcare sector.
The goal of the Datahub is to make data-driven care scalable and clinically applicable while maintaining the human touch.
Health & Technology
The Convergence of Health & Technology support staff is often found present at Convergence Square
The overarching Convergence Office is placed at the Square once a week, mostly on Mondays.
