Launch of the ELLIS blog

Today we are launching the ELLIS blog, aiming to disseminate information about the key concepts, methods and results of the ELLIS project to a wider audience. The first blog post describes the concept of the index of multiple deprivation, and explains why the development of such an index would be a great asset for population health research and policy in Belgium.


ELLIS is funded by the Belgian Federal Science Policy (BELSPO) through the BRAIN-be 2.0 (2018-2023) programme.
