Our researchers

All our researchers are members of one of Nivel’s research units, covering a specific field of expertise. Head of each unit is a program coordinator, one of our experts. Our researchers form a heterogeneous group: there is a core of senior researchers, who can be widely deployed, and a large number of researchers and junior researchers, who still have to develop. Some of them are PhD students, who are devoted for a longer period of time - several years - to do research with a high scientific impact.
