Developing Human Measurement Models

Models based on new technology and data on human processes will allow more effective health research to be carried out, research that will then also become less dependent on the use of animals. For this reason, the Association of Dutch Health Foundations (SGF), the grant agency ZonMw and the agency of the Top Sector Life Sciences & Health, Health~Holland, established the Human Measurement Models programme in conjunction with the Dutch Research Council (NWO). With the aid of their public-private funding, 13 projects are already up and running. They develop and validate human measurement models.
