HDRC Aberdeen

Aberdeen City is changing.

To bring about long-term and positive change in the city, we must change how we work together.

Among these changes is the creation of a Collaboration focused on health. This is health in its broadest sense which includes housing, education, transportation, employment, nutrition, and everything else that affects our well-being. 

We will achieve this by learning together to improve people’s lives.

What is the NIHR Health Determinants Research Collaboration Aberdeen?

The NIHR Health Determinants Research Collaboration (HDRC) Aberdeen is funded by the NIHR (National Institute for Health and Care Research), led by Aberdeen City Council in partnership with NHS GrampianUniversity of Aberdeen and Robert Gordon University. The HDRC’s overall aim is to develop a research active culture within Aberdeen City Council and Community Planning Aberdeen, directed toward understanding and addressing the factors that affect our health and wellbeing.
