Research priority area (RPA) Yield Research Priority Area (RPA) Yield was established in 2013, under management of the Research Institute of Child Development and Education.
Yield conducts multidisciplinary research on the bioecology of human development, from infancy to young adulthood, with perspectives from Medicine, Psychology, Pedagogics, Education, Communication, Economics, and Psychometrics.
Within the gene-environment interactions that shape human development, we distinguish developmental and contextual factors:
- developmental factors: biological (health), cognitive, and social-emotional factors
- contextual factors: family, peers, health care, child and youth care, school, media, cultural and socioeconomic factors.
