The Schools Network has been set up to improve the transition from secondary school to university, for example by giving secondary school teachers and university teachers the opportunity to share experiences. The Schools Network is a partnership between 40 schools in the Utrecht region and nearly all of the university faculties.
Utrecht University has entered into both faculty and university-wide teaching international partnerships with universities across the world. Collaboration primarily consists of student exchange programmes, but may also comprise joint programmes and teacher exchange or teacher-to-teacher cooperation. Besides this Utrecht University also participates in various international networks.
Centre for Entrepreneurship and Innovation
The Centre for Entrepreneurship and Innovation (Centrum voor Ondernemerschap en Innovatie, CvOI) was initiated by Science Park Utrecht. This centre advises and supports students and staff intending to set up their own business.
