Chair "Care and the natural living environment"

During three years this Chair will be financed by the Provincie Antwerpen and build on the on-going project “Green light” (see below) in which the research department ELIZA collaborates with the Provincie Antwerpen who also finances that project.

From 2019 the Chair will focus on research, education and services regarding a better connection between primary health care and the natural living environment:

  • Integration knowledge and practice: practice oriented research (action-research/implementation research) and research oriented practice (practice-evaluation)
  • Integration attention for nature related health benefits & health risks 
  • Inter-professional: collaborative research nature sector – health sector – other relevant sectors; knowledge transfer to and from different sectors
