The ICFI health domain is a research hub working and teaching on improved understanding of how frugal innovations can improve access to health care for marginalized communities.
The Leiden-Delft-Erasmus universities are strong in the health domain and have through the years built several scientific powerhouses around it: the Medical Delta was established, next to the LUMC and Erasmus MC.
ICFI takes on a complementary position within the above landscape: health & frugal innovation. We aim to contribute to bridge the gap between hard-to-reach populations and health care services. We believe that frugal innovations can help bridge this gap. We do this by focusing on multidisciplinary and transdisciplinary research and education regarding health applications and tools.
