Under the name TopFit Impact Programme, Radboudumc, Radboud University, the University of Twente and Wageningen University & Research, join together in an impact programme aimed at preventing and reducing disease and the burden of disease.
FrameworkMuch progress has been made in recent years in understanding disease processes and the development of new treatment methods. At the same time, the realization that many diseases will remain incurable for the foreseeable future grows. Through smart integration of innovative technologies and knowledge about nutrition and health we can be one step ahead of disease and its burdens.
These integral solutions mean that there will be an ever more personal approach in healthcare. The payoff is a maximum increase in the quality of life of patients and the best perspective on affordable healthcare in an aging society. The goal of the TopFit programme is to contribute to controlling and limiting the cost of healthcare in the future, without making concessions to the quality of life of patients.
ImpactTopFit aspires to be a leading health impact programme on three levels: society & health, innovation & (regional) economy and science & technology. Therefore, the researchers work together with key partners in the east of the Netherlands.
During the summer of 2018 the programme will be further specified. After that, more information about TopFit will be available.
