Jacobs Center Integrated Research Project, Planning, 2019

Jacobs Center professors and their colleagues from several disciplines have been meeting to plan the Jacobs Center Integrated Research Project (IRP), which will be a new prospective-longitudinal study of Swiss children. Specialists from diverse fields of study, including economics, education, pediatrics, psychology, psychopharmacology, and sociology have been invited for collaborations and providing input into the design of this new study and to discuss their intersecting research interests. Ultimately, this new interdisciplinary study aims to address novel research questions that will ultimately contribute to improving the lives of children and adolescents.
