Ongoing studies OnePlanet


We use the latest chip and digital technologies to create a society in which everyone can live a healthy life and has access to healthy and sustainable food. read more


In 2050 there will be close to 10 billion people on this planet. To feed these people in a healthy and sustainable manner we will need groundbreaking innovations. Although the challenges are massive, chip and digital technologies are seen as the key enablers in order to develop the necessary solutions.

At OnePlanet Research Center, we initiate fundamental and applied research, groundbreaking innovations and smart product applications. This is only possible by using and bringing together great ideas, innovations and chip and digital technologies from different disciplines and work closely together with industry. We are committed to inspiring partnerships where companies, schools, universities, researchers, social institutions and citizens work together. OnePlanet combines specialisms from the fields of agriculture, food and health and turn dreams into feasible solutions that contribute to a more sustainable society.

Working together

OnePlanet is an initiative of Imec Netherlands, Radboud university medical center, Radboud University and Wageningen University & Research. An initiative in which we, from the Radboudumc, work together with these partners on long-term solutions to promote health and healthy living in order to prevent diseases. We are convinced that we can solve some of the world's problems related to health by combining technical innovations with the more fundamental expertise within the biology spectrum.

And that is fully in line with the mission Radboudumc stands for. The Radboudumc's mission is to have a significant impact on health care. Together with you all we aim to be pioneers in shaping the healthcare of the future. We do this in a person-centered and innovative way and in close collaboration with our network. In this way, all patients receive the best possible care, both now and in the future. Because that’s why we do it.
