Where necessary and relevant, Risbo enjoys partnering with organizations in (higher) education or the social domain. Within Erasmus University, Risbo has been working closely with the Erasmus School of Social and Behavioural Sciences (ESSB) for many years. For example, we collaborate on research on the relationship between COVID-19 and cohesion, on artificial intelligence in the police, and on successful foreign (policy) interventions aimed at strengthening the labor market opportunities of migrant groups. The latter research also involves the Hogeschool van Amsterdam. We also enjoy working together with the Haagse Hogeschool.
Other examples of cooperation projects are:
- research on the situation of children of migrant workers (ism the Haagse Hogeschool).
- research into the social impact of COVID-19 (ism The Hague University of Applied Sciences and Kieskompas).
- the Basic Education Monitor for NPRZ (ism the Research and Business Intelligence Department (OBI) of the Municipality of Rotterdam).
- The Social Inclusion Monitor (ism Labyrinth).

Risbo (Afke Weltevrede) participates in the Knowledge Workplace (Kenniswerkplaaats) Livable Neighborhoods. This KWP is a collaborative effort between the City of Rotterdam, Erasmus University Rotterdam and other knowledge institutes. The objective of is twofold. To generate knowledge by conducting policy and practice-relevant research on urban neighborhoods, livability, safety and citizen participation. And sharing knowledge through lectures, expert meetings and discussions between researchers, policy officers and practitioners. The starting point is the co-creation of knowledge: science, policy and practice together produce relevant and useful insights. See the website of this Knowledge Workplace.
Risbo (Tom Tudjman) has participated in the EU network SIRIUS since 2012, a policy network on education for migrants. This network, established as an association in March 2017, brings together European stakeholders from the fields of migration and education, including policy makers, researchers, education professionals and delegates from migrant organizations. SIRIUS shares knowledge and influences policy developments to help children with a migrant background achieve the same educational standards as their peers without a migrant background.
