Who we are

'Excellence in nutrition & healthcare'

The Nutrition & Healthcare Alliance is recognized as a center of excellence for nutrition in healthcare. We promote health through better integrated nutritional care: before, during and after hospitalisation. Our project adressess social relevant developments, such as an increase in (chronic) illness, self-management, digitalitzation and a changing health care system. We focus on innovative solutions for optimizing the food supply and providing personal nutritional advice.


The Nutrition & Healthcare Alliance has a strong network of knowledge and healthcare institutions, governments and companies (multinationals, SMEs and starters). Together with our network we  work on research and innovation projects. With care organizations, we form a fieldlab for stimulating and testing innovations in healthcare. Our network also offers a social sounding board for developments, projects and themes.

What do we offer?

  • Access to experts from our partners: Wageningen University & Research and Gelderse Vallei Hospital, Rijnstate, Opella, Municipality of Ede
  • Research in the care practice to improve insights into the role of nutrition in (the development of) disease, in treatment and recovery
