The Leiden-Delft-Erasmus Centre for BOLD Cities has launched two multidisciplinary research projects. In the first project, researchers from the three universities will explore whether 'Big, Open and Linked Data’ techniques can be used to gain a better picture of young people who have gone missing from the official records. For this project, the Centre is receiving incentive funding as part of the Dutch Science Agenda's themed programme ‘JOIN – Young people in a resilient society’. In the second project, researchers from Leiden and Rotterdam will conduct research into the use of the data in developing personalised return-to-work programmes. The project is financed by the Netherlands Organisation for Health Research and Development (ZonMW).
