Collaboration within hubs
The strategic research themes harbour fourteen hubs, which focus on tackling key societal challenges. These hubs facilitate and initiate collaboration between the university and societal partners, such as other knowledge institutions, businesses, government authorities, NGOs and lobby groups.
Hubs are the ultimate representation of a new way of thinking: one that is not based on the application or 'valorisation' of previously acquired academic knowledge but on joining forces with others to ponder research questions and strategies.
