Interdisciplinary Research Institutes

Research at VU University Amsterdam covers a wide range of fields that often cut across disciplinary boundaries. In order to encourage and accommodate interdisciplinary research, the university has established interdisciplinary research institutes in which researchers can meet, share their expertise and join forces in the acquisition of external funding. These institutes enhance the scientific quality and the societal impact of research, and they enjoy an excellent reputation due to their successful PhD and research Master’s programmes, worldwide recruitment of staff and students, and active participation in international networks and consortia. They are also highly esteemed, both nationally and internationally, on account of their excellent research facilities.
