Together for more healthy years
Aletta Jacobs School of Public Health

Thought for action. Together for more healthy years.

The Aletta Jacobs School of Public Health – a joint partnership of the University of Groningen, UMCG and the Hanze University of Groningen – is the proud flag-bearer of healthy ageing in the Northern Netherlands. Rooted in fundamental research, we actively convey our knowledge and expertise through education, consultancy and integral collaborations.

Unhindered by daily debates, every person in the Northern Netherlands who wants to, can contribute to a healthier world, together with us. We aim to act both locally and regionally, with the ultimate ambition to create impact on a global scale.


Can you – and would you like to – actively contribute to the realisation of our dream? Do you want to put your specific knowledge and skills at work for the Aletta Jacobs School of Public Health?

Please contact us at and we will talk.
