Close collaboration with leading demographic institute NIDI

26 March 2014

Thanks to structural financial support of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) and the University of Groningen, top-quality interdisciplinary research into population issues will continue in the Netherlands. The NIDI is an institute that conducts research on demographic issues. There are many links between the activities of the NIDI and the University of Groningen with relation to research and teaching. The two institutions are planning to collaborate closely on two of the three research focuses of the University of Groningen (sustainable society and healthy ageing).

The weekly online video magazine Unifocus highlights topics related to the University of Groningen in the fields of research and society, student life, teaching, policy and internationalization.
