About us

This consortium involves a unique collaboration between researchers from eight universities in the Netherlands, who share a mission: to understand how youth grow up in a complex society (Growing Up Together in Society: The GUTS program). The GUTS Consortium extends an existing collaborative research group established in the last 5-10 years that investigates youth from the perspective of societal neuroscience, by combining insights from neuroscience, psychology, psychiatry, and sociology.
