Cooperation with other knowledge institutes and centers is greatly appreciated by the KCVG.
With research and education, other knowledge institutes and universities contribute to job retention and to an increase in the participation rate. The possibility of jointly acquiring new resources for research and development, or for co-funding joint projects, can also be investigated. There are currently already partnerships with the Labor Expert Knowledge Center (AKC) and the Dutch Academic Center for Insurance Medicine (DACIM, or ACPV in Dutch). Relevant research in the field of insurance medicine is conducted or facilitated by research institutes such as APE , and by the Instituut Gak and the Labour Foundation. At the international level, the KCVG cooperates with several European countries. International cooperation leads to the development of knowledge products that benefit the field of insurance medicine in the Netherlands, e.g. Cochrane Field.
