The NWA-IDG fund is designed for young researchers from the entire public knowledge chain and aims to fund small-scale research projects with a high-risk-high-gain focus and with a potential for societal impact. Coen has received the financing of 50 000 euro for his project on childhood health and development.

Project Title:
Origins of the Oppurtunity Gap: Evidence from Dutch Administrative Data on Childhood Health and Development
Abstract:
Children growing up in low-income households have, on average, lower earnings in adulthood and lead unhealthier lives. To what extent are these unequal outcomes driven by unequal opportunities? This project uses novel data on childhood development in the Netherlands to study the origins of the childhood opportunity gap.

Coen is a TI alumnus and currently a PhD student at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam.
