Vrije Universiteit Brussel

The team involved in SOPHIE at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) is part of the Interface Demography group within the Department of Sociology, which has large experience in European projects on health inequalities. The team is mainly composed of sociologists who achieved ample experience in research on social health determinants and more specific employment-related health determinants. A multiplicity of methodological approaches have been adopted previously: systematic literature reviews, advanced quantitative research techniques, as well as qualitative and participatory approaches.
