On June 23rd, we organized the first LUMC Global Community Meeting on establishing successful Sino-Dutch collaborations in (bio)medical research and education.
With broad presence of LUMC professors, researchers, educational staff and researchers from the science faculty of Leiden University, and diplomatic staff of the Dutch Embassy and Consulates in China, we discussed current developments in research & education, R&D, funding opportunities and research ethics in China.
Nico Sciettekatte shared information about the Sino-Dutch (Suzhou) Science and Technology Innovation Park, a park that offers ample opportunity for international collaboration in China. Read more here: https://www.eusinobc.com/sino-dutch-suzhou-science-and-technology-innovation-park/
Annemarie Montulet revealed what it means that China is one of our university’s strategic focus countries, what support is offered and how to approach the topic of knowledge safety in relation to international collaborations. Did you know about this checklist for collaboration with Chinese knowledge institutes?
Furthermore, Yun Tian, Baoxu Pang and Peter ten Dijke proved to be great sources of knowledge and support for anyone taking their first steps in either finding a Chinese PhD or establishing broader institutional collaborations.

Last month we kicked off the pilot study on housing and health, set up by the TU Delft | Global Initiative, Leiden Center for Applied Bioscience (LCAB) and LUMC Global in which 6 groups, consisting of students from all institutes, joined forces to analyse the correlation between spatial conditions of residential neighbourhoods and buildings, and health. All groups developed a comparative analysis of two neighbourhoods in The Hague, with each group looking at different neighbourhoods. Last week, on November 10, they presented their findings and suggestions on the central theme: how do we build a pandemic proof and healthy city?
The Globalization, Accessibility, Innovation, and Care (GAIC) Network has released its 2022 Annual Report. The report showcases how the network has grown into an international, interdisciplinary academic network through the studying of changes in society, access to health care, and global changes in demographics and technology. “GAIC links inquiry of digital innovation, health and humanities, social sciences, and cultural studies. By investigating extraordinary phenomena in different places, a comparative and critical perspective with regards to findings is encouraged“, said LUMC Prof. Dr. Mirjam van Reisen, Coordinator GAIC.
