Aim and approach of the seed call

This seed call is connected to i4CS’s theme Circular safe hospitals (CSH).  

CSH’s mission is to stimulate the development of circular solutions for healthcare. This means that we are looking for solutions that close loops, take planetary boundaries as a precondition and contribute to social inclusion and justice.

This call will focus on the following topics

  1. Circularity in procurement and contracting in hospitals.
  2. Towards circular laboratories.
  3. Circularity from the planetary health perspective.

    With this seed call i4CS aims to:
  • Initiate and support innovative ideas and perspectives on developing circular solutions for healthcare;
  • Facilitate and stimulate collaboration with stakeholders from the healthcare sector, including professionals from the UMC Utrecht.
  • Stimulate and facilitate transdisciplinary collaboration, including researchers of the four EWUU institutes and professionals from UMC Utrecht.
  • Address knowledge gaps encountered by the healthcare sector.

This way we aim to inspire academic research with direct societal impact.
