Consortium on Individual Development


CID annual report 2018/2019 available online

Read about our NWO gravitation funded Consortium on Individual Development (CID) in our online annual report 2018/2019.

CID unites the best in Dutch developmental research: >70 researchers in the social sciences, humanities and (bio)medical sciences working at 7 institutes with data from 6 longitudinal human cohort studies and animal models. By working as a team, we aim to understand and predict how the environment and child characteristics affect the development of social competence and behavioural control.

In 2018/2019, we have been reaping the benefits of our multidisciplinary consortium. A great example of our added value is a paper using cutting edge statistics to combine results across four CID cohorts. Our tight-knit research community also saw career progression of CID grown talent, with several successful PhD graduations and postdocs progressing to new roles. Finally, younger CID researchers started organising meetings for and by themselves.

We are very proud of our progress so far and look forward to continue working together on Why some children thrive, and others don’t.
