The graduate school SOM of the Faculty of Economics and Business of the University of Groningen has been awarded 800,000 euro by NWO to train young researchers. The grant will be used for research in health economics en management. In the Netherlands 18 research schools were granted EUR 14 million in total for young researchers.
SOM will use the NWO funding for 4 PhD projects around the central topic is “The role and effect of incentives in the delivery of health care”. In the end the research of four excellent young researchers with diverse backgrounds should cost reductions and quality improvements.
As intended by NWO graduate programme, the students will play a significant role in the development of ideas for the individual projects. The researchers will each address the topic from a different perspective, e.g. economic, behavioral, operational, medical, and innovation. The overall objective is to contribute to innovative payment and delivery models that help to reduce costs and improve the quality of care.
