Celebrating Development (2023)

Commissioned by CID

The Consortium on Individual Development looks back on ten years of multidisciplinary research. A video to reflect and celebrate development on various levels.


It parallels the consortium's main research question, on how a child develops into an individual, with the 10 yearlong development of its individual researchers into academics within a complex multidisciplinary organisation. Yielding both groundbreaking results as groundbreaking methods. A new way of conducting comprehensible science.
