EURIBEB

The Erasmus University Rotterdam Institute for Behavior and Biology (EURIBEB) is an interdisciplinary research institute that links the social sciences with biology and health. Specifically, our research aims to link biological measures and health (e.g., genes, hormones, neurotransmitters, brain images, mental health, etc.) with social scientific outcomes (e.g., in economics and psychology) and vice versa to address classic research questions in the “mother” disciplines, such as the (behavioral) causes of health or the effects of genes on socio-economic outcomes and inequalities.

The institute is a platform that inspires and nurtures collaborative research within this interdisciplinary context, bringing together leading scholars from the Netherlands and around the world. Read more about the history of EURIBEB here.
