Societal engagement is embedded in VU Amsterdam’s DNA. This is reflected in the way researchers at VU Amsterdam work and approach their research. Our education and research are structured into four overarching societal themes: the Connected World, Governance for Society, Human Health and Life Science, and Science for Sustainability. This is how we encourage multidisciplinary cooperation which is needed to overcome the societal issues of today and the future.
