The Leiden-Delft-Erasmus Strategic Alliance (LDE)
For many years, Leiden University, TU Delft and Erasmus University Rotterdam have been collaborating in many fields of education, research and valorisation. Their partnership has been extended and was formalised through the Leiden-Delft-Erasmus strategic alliance, founded in 2012.
Through innovative and outstanding teaching and research, the interdisciplinary centres and programmes of LDE seek to contribute towards understanding and solving the major and complex social issues of our time. They work with societal partners and seek to form a basis for further academic and public-private partnerships.
