KCVG highly appreciates collaboration with other knowledge institutions.

Through research and education, other knowledge institutions and universities contribute to job retention and to an increased degree of worker participation. Possibilities to jointly acquire new resources for research and development, or to co-fund joint projects, can also be investigated. There are ongoing partnerships with the Labor Expert Knowledge Center (AKC) and the Dutch Academic Center for Insurance Medicine (DACIM). Relevant research in the field of insurance medicine is conducted or facilitated by research institutions such as Foundation Instituut Gak and the Labor Foundation. At an international level, KCVG collaborates with several European countries. International collaboration fosters the development of knowledge products that benefit the field of insurance medicine in the Netherlands, like Cochrane Insurance Medicine.

Two types of collaboration

We distinguish two types of collaboration with KCVG: participation in the KCVG research program and a more casual form of collaboration in other projects.

  1. KCVG's own research projects
    These projects are part of the KCVG research program and concern long-term PhD programs. The KCVG research program is now conducted by Amsterdam UMC, UMCG, UWV and partners.

  2. Other projects
    KCVG is also open to other types of collaboration with ongoing and planned projects that are conducted outside the KCVG research program by scientific and other institutions, or by partners of KCVG through other funding.
