Convergence Alliance

TU Delft, Erasmus University Rotterdam and Erasmus MC join forces in the Convergence Alliance. The urgent and complex societal challenges of our time call for fundamentally new forms of collaboration, crossing the boundaries between institutions and disciplines to create new perspectives and solutions. In the field of research and education, we are committed to pooling our expertise, knowledge and methods to tackle societal challenges such as climate change, sustainability, pressure on the healthcare system, urbanisation and digitalisation. Within the alliance, we work on a number of themes: Resilient Delta, Health & Technology, AI, Data & Digitalisation, Pandemic & Disaster Preparedness Center and Healthy Start. We are working on these challenges together with a large number of public and private partners in South Holland and beyond. With the region as a living lab, the Convergence Alliance thus creates a leading research and innovation ecosystem in Zuid-Holland, with great (inter)national appeal and ambitions.
