With the launch of Erasmus Centre for Health Economics Rotterdam (EsCHER), Erasmus University Rotterdam bundles the unique and leading expertise of over 100 health economists affiliated to the university.
EsCHER aims to strengthen co-operation and stimulate innovation in research and teaching between the associated Schools, institutes and scholars, and to organise joint activities for sharing insights about contemporary challenges and novel findings, for peers, the public, and practitioners and policy makers in healthcare.
