More and more programmes within VU Amsterdam offer students the opportunity to work on social issues. However, this is still done on a relatively small scale and projects are often monodisciplinary. Working on complex social issues requires the integration of insights from different disciplines. Nadine's project proposal describes an innovative ‘Transdisciplinary Global Health Challenge’.
