Stress-NL

The Stress-NL consortium envisions that combining forces between researchers across the Netherlands ranging from preclinical to clinical stress research is needed to advance our knowledge and the stress field as a whole. The kick off meeting has taken place on 2 November 2017 in the OBA library in Amsterdam.

STRESS-NL: founding a national stress consortium

The stress system is ubiquitous in all animal species and is essential to adapt to a changing environment and its relevance can therefore not be overestimated.  Excessive or prolonged stress exposure increases the vulnerability for a wide variety of mental and physical diseases. Our knowledge on the mechanisms of stress has increased to a point that synthesis is possible enabling new initiatives.

The STRESS-NL consortium envisions that combining forces between researchers across the Netherlands ranging from preclinical to clinical stress research is needed to advance our knowledge and the stress field as a whole. The STRESS-NL consortium aims to change the current way of performing stress studies, by combining knowledge, coordinating efforts, and sharing data to emphasize the importance of fundamental and applied stress research to funding agencies, the government and the general public.

Platform objectives

The goal of Stress-NL is to provide a national platform:

  1. for interdisciplinary exchange of knowledge about stress research conducted within molecular, cellular, systems, behavioral, and clinical neurosciences;
  2. for exchange and integration of data to enable larger (meta) analyses of data acquired across multiple sites and research groups;
  3. that can promote stress research toward stakeholders at national and European levels and beyond (grant agencies, charity foundations, etc.) as a focus area that is historically particularly strong within the Netherlands;
  4. that can raise public awareness, knowledge, and trust of scientific research into stress and stress-related disorders.

Information

Stress-NL is a project funded by a grant from The Young Academy. For more information, see www.stress-nl.nl.
